Dear Incoming Soldier,

Congratulations on your assignment to the 593d Expeditionary Sustainment Command. You and your family will find a dynamic environment that is both professionally and personally rewarding. We look forward to you joining the team and sharing your experiences at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

Our command structure consists of Soldiers serving within 95 MOSs, who are prepared to deploy worldwide in order to provide mission command, sustainment, and heath service support to joint and coalition forces and civil authorities. Additionally, we provide daily support to I Corps and other JBLM tenant units. The task organization consists of the 62d Medical Brigade, 51st Signal Battalion (Expeditionary), 13th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion and HHC, 593d.

Located in the Pacific Northwest, JBLM provides endless opportunities for sightseeing, hiking, water recreation and more. Approximately 45 minutes from Seattle, an hour from the Cascade Mountains, and a few miles from the Puget Sound, this is a prime location for quality off-duty activities. As the commander, I will do my best to ensure predictability and balance in all training in order to provide a suitable quality of life for all service members.

The 593d Expeditionary Sustainment Command, along with the various units task-organized under us, welcome you to view our Web site to get more information. The 593d JBLM public homepage can be found at
