Team Minot Welcomes 12 New Honorary Commanders

On January 24, leaders from Minot Air Force Base (MAFB) and the Minot area celebrated the induction of 12 new local community members into the Honorary Commander (H/CC) Program.

The H/CC Program began in the 1980s as an opportunity for local civilian leaders to pair up with MAFB leadership in order to learn more about the mission that thousands of personnel work tirelessly for. Not only do participants get to learn about the overall base happenings, but the program also often includes frequent visits to MAFB, participation in base functions, and the chance for leaders to connect and share local opportunities and concerns.

Honorary Commanders learn about the base itself, and are invited to be included in their unit’s functions, ceremonies, meetings, and other similar events. This partnership helps foster friendships and connections between the community and military members that can last a lifetime.

There are 48 Honorary Commanders in the program, 29 for the 5th Bomb Wing and 19 for the 91st Missile Wing. We’re grateful to have this partnership that continues to bring the base and community together to support our military personnel and Minot area.
