Boat tour broadens horizons for honorary commanders

By Tech. Sgt. Renae Pittman Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Honorary Commanders joined their active-duty counterparts on a tour of the 628th Security Forces Squadron harbor boat security patrol mission on the Cooper River at Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station, June 13, 2016. The Honorary Commander's program provides an opportunity for local civic leaders to develop relationships with the base's senior leadership; encourage an exchange of ideas and experiences; and to work toward increasing understanding and cooperation between the civilian community and the Joint Base. Each Honorary Commander serves for one to two years and is assigned to a military commander to help familiarize and educate them on Joint Base Charleston and the Department of Defense Mission.
