Honorary Commanders Alumni Association

The purpose of the Honorary Commanders Alumni Association (HCAA) is to support the current Honorary Commanders program, as well as maintain and foster key relationships with military and defense contacts at local and remote bases. HCAA provides continuing events, socials and trips to allow graduates of the program to remain engaged in an ever-expanding network of patriotic business and community leaders. There are over 800 Honorary Commanders alumni.

In addition to the programs, trips and interactions that are available exclusively to the Honorary Commanders Alumni Association and its members, all active members receive the annual directory, complete with contact information for the current class and all alumni, discounted admission to all HCAA luncheons and socials, and exclusive invitations to military functions and alumni trips.
