The Beautiful City calls for your talents...

The Community - Belleville, IL
Belleville is a city in St. Clair County, Illinois, co-extensive with Belleville Township. As estimated by the US Census Bureau in 2012, shown on the city's economic development page, the city has a population of 43,765. It is the eighth-most populated city outside the Chicago Metropolitan Area and the most populated city south of Springfield in the state of Illinois. It is the county seat of St. Clair County, and the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Belleville and the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. Due to its proximity to Scott Air Force Base, the population receives a boost from military and federal civilian personnel, defense contractors, and military retirees.

Scott Air Force Base
Scott Air Force Base is in Illinois, near Belleville and O'Fallon. Scott Field was one of thirty-two Air Service training camps established after the United States entered World War I in April 1917. The base is operated by the 375th Air Mobility Wing and is also home to the Air Force Reserve Command's 932d Airlift Wing and the Illinois Air National Guard's 126th Air Refueling Wing, the latter two units being operationally gained by AMC. The base currently employs 13,000 people, 5,100 civilians with 5,500 active-duty Air Force, and an additional 2,400 Air National Guard and Reserve personnel. It was announced in June 2014 that two new cybersecurity squadrons will be added to the three currently on base.
