Wikipedia article: “McChord Field”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“McChord Field (IATA: TCM, ICAO: KTCM, FAA LID: TCM) is a United States Air Force base in the northwest United States, in Pierce County, Washington. South of Tacoma, McChord Field is the home of the 62d Airlift Wing, Air Mobility Command, the field’s primary mission being worldwide strategic airlift.

The McChord facility was consolidated with the U.S. Army’s Fort Lewis on 1 February 2010 to become part of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord complex.[2] This initiative was driven by the Base Realignment and Closure Round in 2005 and is designed to combine current infrastructure into one maximizing war fighting capability and efficiency, while saving taxpayer dollars.[3]”
