Located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Winder Family Medical Clinic offers services and treatments to heal our wounded soldiers and their families. Since 2011, the men and women who staff this clinic have played a vital role in helping keep our warriors and their supporters fit, healthy, and ready to defend American interests and freedom across the globe.
The Winder Family Medical Clinic is named after Sgt. 1st Class Nathan L. Winder, a Special Forces medic assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Lewis, Washington, who died from wounds sustained while conducting combat operations in Iraq. On June 26, 2007 his unit responded to a call for help by a military police unit under heavy attack in the city of Diwaniyah. They discovered insurgents firing from a window in a two-story house hundreds of yards from their position. Sgt. 1st Class Winder remained in the gunner’s box of his vehicle as members of the Quick Reaction Force maneuvered towards the objective. Small arms fire took the life of Sgt. 1st Class Winder as he continued his fire support. On July 27, 2011, a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony was held opening the brand new multi-million dollar, state-of-the art family medical clinic with Winder’s widow, Michelle in attendance.
