Every day approximately 47,000 military personnel and 10,618 civilian employees provide the talent needed to train, sustain, and deploy the combat forces to America’s Crisis Response Contingency Corps and Special Operations Forces. In the time of crisis, Fort Liberty serves as the major nexus for massive troop deployment.

Becoming a Partner with the Military Affairs Council is not only a tremendous opportunity for members to meet personally with leaders from Fort Liberty and Pope Army Airfield, but it also serves as a networking opportunity for our military and their families. MAC continues to participate in other programs throughout the year to provide support and assistance, and works with other charitable groups supporting the military. MAC assisted in the fundraising for the Wall of Heroes at the United States Army Special Operations Command’s Memorial Plaza on Fort Liberty.
