Since its formation in 1918,Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base and the capital city have been linked. Location was the initial common bond, but over the century-long relationship, a true partnership has emerged, one built on shared goals and shared vision that have proved key for both the area’s and the base’s prosperity. It’s changed all of Alabama too: The base’s presence in Montgomery provided impetus for the profusion of aviation and aerospace activity that’s taken off throughout the entire state. Today, as the base celebrates a milestone anniversary, the ties between Montgomery and Maxwell are stronger than ever, and the two are looking ahead to the next 100 years and what continued collaboration will bring.
