The South Carolina Military Base Task Force is an advisory board consisting of Governor appointed representatives from military communities across the state, as well as the Adjutant General and the Secretary of Commerce.  The Task Force was created to enhance the value of military installations, facilities, and the quality of life for military personnel located in South Carolina.

The Task Force attends the Commander’s Lunch in April and the Commander’s Brief to the Governor in October. They also review Military Enhancement Fund proposals and make recommendations to the Secretary regarding approvals.

Importance of South Carolina to the Military

South Carolina’s military community provides critical strategic value to our nation’s defense. All five services have a significant presence in our state, leading to synergy and mission support. Our location on the East Coast is advantageous for deployment to the Middle East, South and Central America, Africa, and Europe, as well as to Military Operating Areas (MOAs) offshore. Each base supports multiple defense missions that contribute to defense readiness, training and homeland security.
