ICYMI: Thank You from ADC President Bob Ross

December 23, 2022

The end of the year is a time to both reflect and look forward. In defense communities across the country, there is much to reflect on. The lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, inflationary pressures on local economies and political divisions have tested our ability to support service members and military families in unprecedented ways. Throughout all these challenges, however, our defense communities have remained strong and resilient. Whatever challenges lay ahead, ADC is honored to support these communities and the people who call them home.

From all of us at ADC, thank you for your support. We wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.

Sincerely,

Bob Ross, ADC President

Editor’s Note: Look for the next edition of On Base on Jan. 3.
