Top leaders from all major commands at Barksdale Air Force Base will be front and center at the Bossier Chamber of Commerce's Military Speakers' Luncheon. 

The event will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Thursday, June 19 at the Hilton Garden Inn on 2015 Old Minden Rd.

The Bossier Chamber started the event as a way to educate the community on the economic impact Barksdale has on our region as well as to encourage support and build solid community partnerships for Team Barksdale. 

As the five year anniversary approaches for Air Force Global Strike Command, attendees will have the honor of hearing an in-depth overview from Lt Gen Stephen Wilson, the highest ranking officer at Barksdale, and Commander of Air Force Global Strike Command.  This year marks the first time the event has featured a presenter of this level.

The luncheon will also provide attendees with a look at major happenings at Barksdale AFB and a behind the scenes look into the day to day operations of Air Force Global Strike Command, 8th Air Force, 2nd Bomb Wing, and 307th Bomb Wing.
