Northeast Indiana Base Community Council 

  "America's Most Engaged Military Community!"

Since 2011, the NIBCC has served as a catalyst in unifying the military, civilian and business communities of the greater Fort Wayne region through awareness, collaboration, advocacy, workforce development and leadership. Efforts include:

  • Connecting people to programs, building a network of support for service members and their families.
  • Promoting the six military bases and armories in the 11-county region.

   —122nd Fighter Wing – Air National Guard

   —1st Battalion, 293rd Infantry – Army National Guard

   —A/2 – 152nd Cavalry – Army National Guard

   —384th MP BN HHC – Army Reserve

   —1/330th IN REGT – Army Reserve

   —221st OD CO – Army Reserve

NIBCC is a 100-percent volunteer organization, offering members the opportunity to participate in or attend the myriad events throughout the year.

Without a paid staff, every dollar raised through memberships, donations, sponsorships and event income goes directly toward continuing NIBCC programs. If you would like to join, renew your membership, or donate to the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council, please visit


Now is the time to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather and glorious colors of spring. There is no better way to kickstart your spring running regimen than to register for upcoming races within your community. If you are planning to participate in just a few fun runs or train for a marathon, Race for the Warrior is a great way to support your local community while laying the foundation of a successful racing season. Don’t procrastinate! Kick off your spring training by registering for the 7th Annual Race For The Warrior 5K/10K Run & Walk. The race will take flight on July 24 on the runways at the Fort Wayne International Airport. All proceeds go to support the Military Support Fund and the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council.
