about the program

The Team Scott Honorary Commanders Program provides an opportunity for commanders and senior leaders to build strong, positive and lasting relationships with local community leaders. The program allows us to explore mutual areas of interest and help increase the public understanding of military missions, assets and people.

The Honorary Commanders feature community members and leaders from a number of locations around the Greater Scott Community to include St. Louis. Additionally, participants represent a wide range of experience from government to private business owners and professionals. These Honorary Commanders will serve for two years.  

Those who would like to be considered or would like to nominate someone may speak with the 375th Air Mobility Wing Public Affairs staff at 618-256-4241 or 375amw.pa@us.af.mil.
