Local Strength

Mission Strong is a united effort across Southern Arizona to support our military assets and make our voices heard. We hope you’ll join us to keep our military and our communities strong.

America’s armed forces deliver a huge economic benefit to our community. Southern Arizona’s five military assets provide nearly 62,000 direct and indirect jobs and pump $5.4 billion into our economy every year. But that could be at serious risk due to actions by our federal government: sequestration, predicted budget cuts, and the uncertain future of the A-10 fighter plane.

We can’t take military operations in Southern Arizona for granted. We need to let Washington know just how much we value them. Mission Strong is an effort of the Southern Arizona Defense Alliance, a broad group of community and civic leaders, business organizations, military support groups, elected officials across all political affiliations, and private citizens.

Join forces with Mission Strong today. Protect our local military assets and the nation’s defense.

Your voice matters. Mission Strong is looking for your help in reaching our representatives. Let the Air Force know you support Davis-Monthan’s pilot training. Help us with by writing a letter to offer the opportunity to take action in the community. Read more here.
