Great news to hear that all 12 Thai youth soccer players and their coach were rescued after the last four players emerged this morning from a cave in northern Thailand #ThamLuang. They had been trapped inside the cave by floodwaters since June 23.

More than 40 U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) service members were at the cave to aid in the successful rescue attempt.

Why do we burn? Mazama pocket gopher habitat restoration, prairie habitat enhancement, Scotch broom reduction, and to improve training lands and firefighter training at #AmericasJointBase.

Today at noon, the Environmental Division will conduct a #PrescribedBurn in training area 21, 1 mile northeast of the intersection of Military and Rainier roads. To report nuisance smoke, call 253-912-2049. Remember, good fires prevent bad ones. Sustainable JBLM JBLM Public Works
