The Homestead - Florida City Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is a committee of theHomestead - Florida City Chamber of Commerce and has proudly supported the military mission and military quality of life for over forty-three years. The Charter of the Military Affairs Committee is to assist military units within the Chamber's area to meet their mission and goals, promote understanding between the civilian and military communities, enhance the quality of life for our military and their families, and to support - as practical - other military units inDadeCounty area.
This support was focused on Homestead Air Force Base through 1992, and now Homestead Air Reserve Base (482d Fighter Wing) and its joint missions. These diverse missions now include not only the 482nd Fighter Wing's F-16 mission, but the Florida Air National Guard's sovereign air defense mission, Special Operations Command South, USCG Maritime Safety & Security Team Miami 91114, US Customs & Border Patrol, Florida Army Guard's 50th Area Support Group, and various temporary missions assigned to the base.
