Welcome to BCMAC! We support the Burlington County Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and their Families!
The BCMAC mission is to act as a liaison between county based military commanders and the civilian community to promote, maintain and foster a harmonious and mutual understanding of each other's missions and issues to prevent problems.
Recognizing that the bases represent a major economic impact on our county and the region, it is imperative the civilian population understand and support the men and women of our military while they are in our community. The move to establish the first tri-service joint base in the country by bringing together McGuire Air Force Base, Fort Dix and Lakehurst Naval Air Station presents an opportunity for even more positive impact on our communities. Our membership can have a significant positive impact in assisting our service men and women know that they appreciated by supporting them and their families.
Some of our major activities in the past few years have been to help our young military personnel in time of financial or personal need. We have sponsored briefing sessions with senior military leadership as well as Military Family Dinners and Pizza Parties for troops being deployed or returning from duty abroad. The committee helps keep the sense of family alive by issuing phone cards to troops deployed throughout the world so that they may call home and hear from loved ones. We provide gifts of bicycles and helmets to dependent children of military personnel and provide other silent partnerships with the leaders of the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. We have annual fund raising events and provide trips to sporting events and social events as well as visits to military bases and service academies. Many of our members act as Honorary Commanders at our bases and participate in a wide range of on and off base activities.
