About the Charles County Military Alliance Council
The Charles County Military Alliance Council was founded in 2015 with the goal of creating connections between the Town of Indian Head, the greater Southern Maryland community and our military community at Naval Support Facility Indian Head. We work together with leaders from our local government and business communities, as well as base leadership to forge a strong and mutually beneficial relationship.
We are an incorporated 501(c)(4) not-for-profit corporation dedicated to supporting local defense activities, the military and our local economy. Our focus is on educating and informing our national, regional and local defense stakeholders and the public of the high military value, unique mission/capabilities and unmatched intellectual capital within the county’s military facilities. The MAC supports the development and execution of strategies that enhance, preserve and support Navy missions, activities and infrastructure. We promote these capabilities in the national debate regarding reduction of military bases and facilities.
As advocates, we encourage the coordination of activities and strategic planning with our elected officials and offer our residents and businesses an opportunity to support defense missions and activities that ultimately protect the warfighter and enhance our national security. Charles County’s National Defense Community, which encompasses all DoD assets, activities and retired military and civilian personnel, is nationally recognized as a critical defense asset and a valuable economic and community partner.
We understand that we are stronger when we work together, so we advocate for both the town and the base, seeking to create a growing, thriving, collaborative community here in Charles County
