CHOOSE HAMPTON: A Military Friendly Community
 
Hampton Military Affairs Committee LogoThe Hampton Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is the only municipal MAC in Hampton Roads, the epicenter of the world’s military headquarters. Its mission is reflective of Hampton’s commitment to our military, our veterans, and their families.

As the first English-speaking settlement in America, the character of Hampton has been molded by its rich history and  engaged citizenry.  But it has been equally influenced by the presence of its large active-duty military and veteran communities.  In fact, the 2000 U.S. Census revealed that Hampton has the greatest concentration of veterans in the adult civilian population  -- 27.1% -- of any American city with a population greater than 100,000. Learn more about living in the City of Hampton, VA.
 
The Hampton MAC, with its strong advocacy of the military, veterans and their families, is working to create one of the most military-friendly communities in America.  Our efforts are made possible by the strong support of elected and appointed officials of the City.   From coordinating special events to help transitioning military members find new careers in Hampton to assisting distressed veterans at community supported stand-downs, we strive to serve them.  From celebrating our military children with fun-filled fairs to honoring the service and sacrifices of our military in solemn, respectful ceremonies, we seek to honor them.   Everyday in every way, the Hampton MAC works tirelessly on their behalf.   And we do it …Because the Military Matters.
