Goodfellow Air Force Base and the City of San Angelo: A True Example of a One Community Effort to Integrate Partnerships at All Levels

Since 2014, the relationship between Goodfellow AFB/17 Training Wing and San Angelo, TX, through the Air Force Community Partnership Program, leads 63 USAF installations with the greatest number of partnership agreements. San Angelo was twice awarded Air Education and Training Command’s Altus Trophy for the most supportive community to a military installation. In the past two years, Goodfellow and San Angelo doubled their community partnerships, increased yearly cost savings from $400,000 to $6 million, and achieved DoD’s 1st IGSA for contracted quarters with a public university and the USAF’s 1st Base/Wing IGSA for faculty development with a public university. The key to their success is unity of effort focused on co-developing the overall community.
