Whiteman AFB Community
Whiteman Air Force Base is in central Missouri, an area many think of as the Ozarks, a state made famous by its seemingly endless streams. Others regard Missouri as merely an extension of St. Louis or Kansas City. Actually, it is both and neither. Covering more than 44 million acres, Missouri is larger than all of New England. Whiteman AFB, somewhat removed from dense population, can still yield any product or service imaginable within an hour’s drive.
There are numerous smaller communities surrounding the base, including Knob Noster and Warrensburg within 2 and 12 miles, respectively. Sedalia is 20 miles to the east. Other surrounding communities include: California, Clinton, Cole Camp, Concordia, Higginsville, Holden, Independence, Jefferson City, Kansas City, La Monte, Lexington, Lincoln, Marshall, Versailles, Warsaw and Windsor. Residents and merchants from these communities welcome military members and their families with open arms, while providing great support through the Base Community Council.
