E Foundation seeks to rectify issues plaguing military installations

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK– Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb joined commanders from Tinker Air Force Base, US Army Fires Center of Excellence and Ft. Sill Vance Air Force Base, Altus Air Force Base, and McAlester Army Ammunition Plant to launch of the E Foundation for Oklahoma’s “Enduring Freedom” pillar and mission.

“This is I think the first time when we’ve ever sat down with installations and discussed the issues that are particular to individual installations, but also general to all installations,” said MG (ret.) Lee Baxter, former Commanding General at Ft. Sill and current member of the E Foundation’s Board of Directors. “The idea of identifying problems on the installations that the state can be helpful in solving is going to be very productive in a lot of cases.”

The discussion focused on the important issues facing our state’s military installations, including veteran’s health care, preparations for the next round of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, installation and community relations, and the Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission.

The E Foundation for Oklahoma is dedicated to creating actionable long-range strategic planning to grow Oklahoma’s economy and improve its citizen’s quality of life while supporting our veterans and their needs from the sacrifices they have made. State leadership has aligned with military leadership on a strategic plan to make Oklahoma a destination for the defense industry and the economic impact that will bring to the state.

“State policy matters when it comes to military installations, and we learned other states and communities are being proactive in planning and aggressive in supporting their military installations. We are going to adapt and plan on doing it better in Oklahoma,” stated E Foundation Chairman Todd Lamb.
