February 19, 2013
FORT LEE, Va. -- Maj. Gen. Larry D. Wyche, Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee commanding general, was joined by military and civilian leaders in cutting the ceremonial ribbon to officially open the Army's largest single structure lodge Feb. 19. Inside the seven-story facility, which is managed by the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, there are 1,000 guest rooms, a business center, an in-house laundry facility and 14 study rooms. This home away from home will primarily support students attending courses at the Army Logistics University and families during permanent change of station moves. "With the opening of this signature work of architecture, we will provide the student population here vital services beyond just lodging: convenient access to the university's library and fitness centers, broadening campus discourse, and enhancing opportunities for collaboration and joint projects," Wyche said. This facility "symbolizes the Army's commitment to provide our service members, and families, quality of life excellence, for however long they call Fort Lee home."
