MILITARY MATTERS

MILITARY INTEGRATION & DEVELOPMENT

Wichita Falls is home to Sheppard AFB, which is the largest, most diverse training base in Air Education and Training Command, and is the only Air Force base that is home to both technical and flying training. Sheppard AFB is responsible for the draw of 9,576 active duty and civilian personnel and their 3,300 dependents in the Wichita Falls area. An additional 3,300 military retirees also rely on Sheppard Air Force Base annually, as well. It’s safe to say that Sheppard Air Force Base brings a ton of new faces to our community every year!

The Wichita Falls community is proud to support those who serve and their families. The Chamber’s role includes bridging the gap between the Base and the community, supporting military families in all stages of life, and retaining Sheppard Air Force Base and its affiliates. Between programs for employment, community connection, military discounts, resources, advocacy, and more, we are answering the call to best serve our military affiliates now and forever.
