Newly inducted, and sitting honorary commanders gather to practice drill movements and learn about Air Force customs, courtesies and individual protective equipment, Suisun City, California, October 9, 2020. 

The honorary commanders program pairs a local business leader with a unit commander to serve as that units' "honorary commander." The pairing is designed to maintain a solid, mutually beneficial relationship between the public and Team Travis.

Honorary Commanders listen in as Mr. Landero (David Grant Medical Center Simulation Lab) provides an overview of simulation training capabilities for Travis AFB medical personnel. The purpose of the Honorary Commanders Program is to boost positive relationships between the military and civilian communities, to further share the Air Force story to a broader audience, and to identify mutually shared interests, viewpoints and challenges facing base senior leaders and their civilian counterparts.
