  • Community Partner- We understand the significance of each facility and the importance of ensuring factors such as encroachment do not inhibit the ability of the military facilities in Bossier from operating efficiency and effectively now or at anytime in the future.
  • Advocate – We identify and monitor military issues at the local, state and federal levels that affect Barksdale Airforce Base and the community in partnership with Barksdale Forward.
  • Funding- We will work along with Barksdale Forward to advocate for the funding of Barksdale Air Force Base to ensure its longevity in Bossier Parish and needs of its current and future missions.
