Fort Jackson Commanding General Welcome Breakfast

Columbia is proudly called “The Most Military Friendly Community in America.” There are numerous programs and organizations who create great value for our military. We are home to the US Army’s largest training base at Fort Jackson, the South Carolina National Guard and McEntire Joint National Guard Base, Department of Defense Contractors, and the US Army Reserve. The combined economic impact of these military operations is in excess of $4.1 billion dollars per year. The Chamber’s work in this space includes strengthening relationships between the community and military; supporting military families; and retaining and expanding the local military footprint. This involves interacting with numerous constituents including local leaders, elected officials (city, county, state and federal), and military outreach groups. Outside of our state, the Chamber works closely with colleagues in Washington, DC to monitor military-related legislation and issues.

This is a welcome breakfast honoring the new Commanding General at Fort Jackson.
