Since 1995, the Military Affairs Council of Western Pennsylvania (MACWPA) has supported and advocated for the military.

We are committed to serving and elevating Western Pennsylvania through the support of our military. We actively protect the long term presence of military bases in the area and work to foster even more military-driven economic growth for businesses and security for our region.

In growing the military presence here, we believe that everyone benefits—from the servicemen and women stationed here, to their families, to the civilians that call Western Pennsylvania home.

Comprised of motivated local volunteers, MACWPA members have a passion for the good that the military does for our nation and our region, and our members are often veterans themselves or have close ties to the military through family or friends.

Together with the support of local businesses and organizations as well support from legislators and individual citizens, we pursue any opportunity that will better our military and our community.

Our Mission

The purpose of the Military Affairs Council of Western Pennsylvania is to cherish the values of freedom and to pass on to future generations that freedom is not free; that its preservation is the responsibility and sacrifice of all citizens; and to inculcate respect and admiration for the dedicated men and women serving our country in the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and Air Force; and to promote, participate and support the programs and presence of the military installations in Western Pennsylvania.
