Honorary Commander Program Philosophy
The Honorary Commander Program partners the commanders of Dover AFB with some of Delaware's distinguished community and political leaders. The program encourages an exchange of ideas, experiences and friendships between key leaders of the surrounding communities and Dover AFB. By building and strengthening community relationships, commanders and honorary commanders can positively impact their community.

What to Expect
As an Honorary Commander, you will experience Dover AFB's dynamic mission from all angles. From meeting pilots in the cockpit of a C-5M Super Galaxy or C-17 Globemaster III to touring the Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations Center, Honorary Commanders are treated to the full range of operations conducted at Dover AFB.

Once your tour as an Honorary Commander is complete, you will be invited to continue your participation and support as one of our Honorary Commander Alumni. You can continue fostering the friendly and professional relationships you developed over the course of your year as a Dover Air Force Base Honorary Commander.
