In late November, the Knox Regional Development Alliance (KRDA) announced that the Association of Defense Communities (ADC) had named the Greater Fort Knox Region to the 2018 class of Great American Defense Communities. Chosen through a competitive nominating process, the region is one of only five communities across the country to receive the designation, including Chesapeake Science & Security Corridor, near Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland; the San Diego region; the South Georgia region, home to Moody Air Force Base; and Tampa Bay, Fla.
The Great American Defense Communities, now in its third year, recognizes military communities and regions that help improve the quality of life for service members and military families. In nominating the Greater Fort Knox region, KRDA touted its wide array of services and innovative programs that set the region apart from hundreds of other defense communities across the country.
Where Opportunity Knox, a regional initiative to connect transitioning Veterans and/or military spouses to jobs and the Greater Louisville Region, is honored that KRDA showcased our program as one of their innovative partnerships! Congratulations to the Greater Fort Knox Region and the KRDA for this well-deserved honor!
