San Antonio has been home to a consistent military presence for nearly 300 years. It’s why we’re called “Military City USA”. Today, the city has one of the nation’s largest active and retired Military populations. Joint Base San Antonio: educates more Department of Defense (DoD) students than any other installation, hosts the largest concentration of Cyber and Intelligence communities second only to the National Capital Region in DC, oversees more active runways than any other installation, houses the DoD’s largest hospital and only level one trauma center, and supports over 565,000 personnel who live and work in 4 counties and 4 Congressional districts.
The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 50th Anniversary of Celebrate America’s Military in 2020 as a series of events honoring the men and women who serve in our Nation’s Military – Active, Guard, and Reserve from all branches.
This year, we also are honored to go back to our roots, celebrating our veterans and recognizing their sacrifices to our great Nation.
