Antelope Valley Named as a 2022 ‘Great American Defense Community’

As mentioned in the Antelope Valley Times, March 25, 2022, The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) announced that the Antelope Valley has been selected as one of five Great American Defense Communities for 2022. The communities were chosen in conjunction with USAA, the program’s official sponsor at the Defense Communities National Summit in early March. The city of Palmdale applied for the award on behalf of the region, which is home to Edwards Air Force Base, Air Force Plant 42, and several defense related companies. Communities are chosen through a competitive nomination process based on integration, support and collaboration with installations and community building efforts, such as educational and employment opportunities. This year, the Great American Defense Communities Program has a special focus on how communities are innovating and pioneering new ways to serve service members and their families.
