On Thursday, May 24, 2018, the Lacey City Council unveiled an honor wall for the 1-2 Stryker Brigade, stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, during a ceremony at Lacey City Hall.
At the event, Mayor Ryder spoke of the strong connection the City of Lacey has with the Brigade, “Lacey is home to over 3,000 active-duty military members and nearly 6,000 veterans. The purpose of installing this honor wall is to recognize the service and sacrifice of the 1-2 Stryker Brigade. Our hope is that this wall will stand as a testament to our deep appreciation and respect for all they do for our country.”
Brigade Commander, Colonel Jeffers expressed his gratitude for the honor wall and the relationship that the Lacey city leadership has developed with the Brigade over the past several years.
The 1-2 Stryker Brigade Honor Wall is installed at Lacey City Hall just outside of the Council Chambers. The honor wall includes symbols representing the various battalions within the Brigade, photos of the command team, as well as a plaque with the Brigade’s slogan.
The City of Lacey and the 1-2 Stryker Brigade have a long-standing partnership through the Department of Defense’s Community Connector Program. This program encourages communication between the military and local communities for the purpose of enhancing the understanding of the military and JBLM, as well as developing strong and positive community partnerships.
