Providing a host of specialized programs between the military and local community, our Community Engagement Section identifies and fosters opportunities with organizations across civic, business and governmental institutions, to increase public trust and enhance support for military operations in the defense of our Nation. These programs include base tours, Speaker's Bureau programs, and events such as air shows and career day events with local schools. The Community Engagement Section is also the focal point for complaints and environmental concerns.

The Joint Base Andrews Honorary Commanders Program encourages an exchange of ideas and experiences, increases public awareness and understanding of the military as well as encourages friendships between key leaders of the base's surrounding communities, JBA commanders and Airmen.
Joint Base Andrews and our tenant units appreciate the enormous sacrifices made by our neighbors as we train for the defense of our country. Among those sacrifices is the occasional disruption of daily life by noise and flight operations.
The Air Force's primary job is national security. Joint Base Andrews is America's Airfield and our primary mission is to support and defend the National Capital Region. The units based at Joint Base Andrews train to immediately respond to our nation's call. Sometimes this training results in low-flying aircraft and noise.
Joint Base Andrews strives to be a good neighbor by maintaining good community and media relations with our surrounding communities. We diligently seek to provide timely, responsive, and factual answers to all public inquiries as they pertain to Joint Base Andrews.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while our Airmen strive to train and support our Department of Defense mission - know that your safety and our safety are paramount to our missions.
