In 2011, the City of University Place welcomed the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade as its new Community Connector Partner. The 16th CAB Battalion is comprised of approximately 2,500 soldiers, and is the largest Aviation Brigade in the Army.
The JBLM Community Connector Program links local municipalities with specific units from JBLM. The program’s goal is to encourage community support and partnership with soldiers and families assigned to live within surrounding communities.
The City benefits through the generosity of the soldiers, who have provided volunteer services at local parks, community projects and events. Through their volunteer service, the soldiers connect with the community; and in return the 16th CAB is included in the City’s community family.
The City of University Place welcomes the 16th CAB to our community.
