MacDill Air Force Base

MacDill Air Force Base is an active United States Air Force base located approximately 4 miles south-southwest of downtown Tampa, Florida. The "host wing " for MacDill AFB is the 6th Air Mobility Wing of the Air Mobility Command, part of AMC's Eighteenth Air Force. Approximately 14,000 people work at MacDill Air Force Base, with a significant number of military personnel and their families living on base in military housing, while remaining service members and military families live off base in the Tampa Bay area. MacDill AFB is a significant contributor to Tampa's economy and the city is very supportive of the military community. In 2001 and 2003, the Tampa Bay area was awarded the Abilene Trophy, which annually honors the most supportive Air Force city in Air Mobility Command. MacDill Air Force Base may be the second most important government building outside of the Pentagon. It's home to U.S. Central Command, which oversees U.S. action in the Middle East.
