Who is SMAC?

The Sheppard Military Affairs Committee (SMAC) is a non-profit organization whose primary function is to serve as a voice for Sheppard Air Force Base and North Texas. In 2005, the “BRAC” (Base Realignment and Closure) Commission moved basic medical training from Sheppard, resulting in a $48 million annual loss to our area economy. At this time, key community leaders established SMAC to protect and strengthen the missions at Sheppard.

Since its inception, SMAC has worked tirelessly to protect current missions and bring new opportunities to Sheppard. Today, as Washington leaders call for $100 billion in military spending cuts and the consideration of base closures, our work is more important than ever.
