The News Tribune said a report to congressional lawmakers said the airmen were treated for ringing in their ears at a medical clinic at the base. No one was seriously injured.
The attack also damaged a McChord Air Field-based C-17 Globemaster III, puncturing the jet in at least six places. The report said it could take up to four days to assess the damage.
The plane was parked and the Army's top general was not on it.
