Arizona’s military industry, including operations at the Marine Corp Air Station (Yuma), Fort Huachuca (Sierra Vista), Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (Tucson) and Luke Air Force Base (Phoenix), along with Navy and National Guard installations, and the many businesses they support, is responsible for creating or supporting more than 76,000 jobs that are dispersed over a wide variety of industries.

The Maguire Company report states the industry annually contributes $158.9 million in local tax revenues, in addition to a $96.8 million contribution to state government for a combined total of $255.9 million.

The $ound of freedom.
