MILITARY STABILITY FOUNDATION
SERVING and PROTECTING ALABAMA'S MILITARY COMMUNITY
The Military Stability Commission and Foundation work in conjunction to proactively ensure the stability of Alabama-assigned DOD resources by study and evaluation of all currently assigned military forces or civilian contractors and the move of these resources within, to, and from the State of Alabama.
The operational arm of the Military Stability Commission, the Military Stability Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation which was incorporated in September 2011. The Foundation works directly with the Commission, Alabama-assigned DOD installations, and the communities that surround and support them to develop and implement measures to retain and strengthen Alabama's military assets and infrastructure and to assist in preparations for any impending Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) or similar process.
The Foundation is led by a 6 member Board of Directors, which are representative of areas of heavy defense concentration in the State. John Mitchell of Enterprise, Alabama currently serves as Chair of the Board for the Military Stability Foundation.
