BAFB seeks community leaders for Honorary Commanders program

BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. - Barksdale Air Force Base is soliciting leaders in the local community to serve as Honorary Commanders.
As an active community member, Barksdale AFB is committed to promoting and maintaining open and positive relations with our community.

The Honorary Commander Program fosters strong relationships and communication between base commanders and community leaders.

The program also educates civic leaders about the Air Force and Barksdale missions.
The Wing Commander will select Honorary Commanders from among nominated community leaders who are business leaders, non-federally elected or appointed officials, mayors, chamber of commerce-type group members, principals of local schools, Military Affairs Committee members, and others who lead in the community.
Honorary commanders will spend time with a Barksdale unit over two years to learn about various parts of the base mission and the role the military plays in the nation’s defense.
If you are interested or know someone who would serve well as an Honorary Commander, please submit a
nomination no later than July 5.
