Fort Lewis officials are expecting a huge turnout at the Main Post Chapel for the memorial ceremony for Capt. Drew Jensen, a Stryker platoon leader who died Sept. 7, four months after being shot in Baqouba.

The ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m.

The West Point graduate from the Portland area was serving on his second deployment with the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division at the time he was wounded. A gunshot wound to the neck left him a quadriplegic, and per his wishes, his family removed him from life support at a Seattle hospital.

As always, civilians without Department of Defense credentials can get on post to attend the ceremony. Go the visitor center at the main gate, Exit 120 off Interstate 5, and bring your driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance to get a temporary visitor pass.
