375th Air Mobility Wing Commander

I am incredibly proud to call St. Clair County home and honored that they were recognized by the Association of Defense Communities as a 2020 winner of the "Great Defense Community Award." We are one of five such communities being recognized for the class of 2020. (www.defensecommunities.org/gadc/)

The Great American Defense Communities program shines a light on the regions and individuals who are making a difference. The program was designed to recognize and celebrate communities with an exceptional commitment to improving the lives of service members, veterans and their families.

The county is blessed to have so many residents who give back on a daily basis to our military members and their families. Having strong community support for any of our installation is a necessary ingredient for our overall mission success, and all I can say is Thank You for always being there for Team Scott over the last 100+ years.

General information

What is a defense community? Communities adjacent to active and closed defense installations are distinct places. America’s defense installations depend on local communities for housing, services and even operational support. This connection and responsibility is what makes these communities unique – it’s what makes them defense communities. Defense communities have active installations – where local governments and states are working to support our military. Defense communities also may have closed or realigned installations – where local governments lead the way in finding new economic uses for former bases.
