If you have spent any time at all reading our blog then you know we tend to talk about Tinker Air Force Base a lot. Well we have good reason too. Not only is Tinker critical in the defense of our country, but it is one of the biggest economic drivers in our state. More than 26,000 employees got to work at Tinker every day and the base contributes more than $3 billion to the local economy annually.
This year Tinker celebrates its 75th anniversary. The year will be filled with fun activities to celebrate the monumental anniversary culminating in an Air Force Ball on Sept. 16.
This a chance to not only celebrate the crucial work being done at Tinker but also 75 years of deep commitment between the Air Force and our community. So check out the schedule, get to an event (or two) and celebrate Tinker’s 75 years in our city as we look forward to even more success for the base in the future.
