About ADC50

ADC President Karen Holt announced the ADC50 strategy last week at the Defense Communities National Summit, as On Base reported.

“In a time when so much of our national dialogue seems focused on division, our story of being together around our common mission of support is unique and powerful,” Holt said. “We believe this story can be the foundation for creating new connections between military and civilian worlds.”
