They don't even call it Fort Lewis now, it has merged with McChord Air Force Base.
I went through basic at Ft Lewis in Aug/Sept 1967, I guess they sent me there because I only lived 90 miles away.
Later on, my flight to Nam left from McChord.

"Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) is a United States military facility located 9.1 miles south-southwest of Tacoma, Washington. The facility is under the jurisdiction of the United States Army Joint Base Garrison, Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The facility is an amalgamation of the United States Army Fort Lewis and the United States Air Force McChord Air Force Base which were merged on 1 February 2010."
