Over the past two decades, millions of Soldiers and their families have cycled through U.S. Army Fort Huachuca’s “Extraordinary Skies and Uncommon Ground” nestled high in the Huachuca Mountains of southeastern Arizona. For many – this is an outdoor recreation and family paradise, for others – the relative isolation and lack of “big city” life is a bit traumatic.

The Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is a long-standing function of Sierra Vista AZ’s Chamber of Commerce promoting cooperation, collaboration, and partnership with the Ft. Huachuca community, its Soldiers and Families. The MAC’s primary mission is to facilitate constant dialog between civilian and commercial leadership and the Fort – while providing information and opportunities for Military Families to get off post, engage with, and enjoy the town. This is accomplished through events, programs, sponsorships, and a wide variety of activities – including Quarterly Luncheons held on the Fort where Military and town leadership gather to exchange information, honor Soldiers’ of the Quarter, and fellowship over good food. Guest Speakers at these MAC Luncheons have included University Presidents & Deans, Generals, members of the Senior Executive Service, Mayors, Senators, State Representatives, etc.

TekSynap is a Diamond Level Corporate Sponsor of Sierra Vista’s MAC Luncheons, including the annual “Bring a Vet to Lunch” event where Veterans living in Retirement Centers, Assisted Living, Nursing Homes, and “shut ins” are brought to the Fort for a free lunch with full Military “Pomp and Circumstance”. Each year, the oldest and youngest (male and female) Veterans and Soldiers are honored and cut the dessert cake with Army Cavalry Swords.

At Wednesday, 02-August’s MAC Luncheon, Vice President Joe Walker introduced TekSynap’s local, national, and global business, our Government customers served, and missions supported – to an audience of over 100 Military and Civilian Leaders, including Major General Christopher Eubanks, US Army NETCOM Commander. The was followed by updates from local leaders, lunch, and keynote talk on Artificial Intelligence from Dr. Gary Packard (BG, USAF Ret.), Dean of the College of Applied Science and Technology, University of Arizona.
