Our military bases and defense communities have always needed the support of their surrounding communities.  For Indian Head’s Naval Base, that support first came in the form of the Naval Energetics Technology Alliance.


Next, the Indian Head Defense Alliance was formed to protect the base from a Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). This group of retired NSF employees and local businesses were successful not only in 1995 but also again in 2005.


In 2015, the Charles County Chamber of Commerce established the Military Alliance Council (MAC) in recognition of the important role the defense industry and military play in the quality of life of our citizens, our local economy and national security.

The financial and cultural impact of NSF IH for Charles County is considerable. The MAC, in its role as an advocate, works to ensure that NSF IH receives the support it needs to successfully accomplish their missions.
