For the first time in its history, Joint Base Lewis-McChord will be home to a unit of AH-64 Apache attack helicopters.

The first helicopters from the 1st Battalion of the 229th Aviation Regiment arrived at JBLM on Friday. The rest will arrive later in the summer. The unit was previously based at Ft. Hood in Texas.
