The Pikes Peak Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (PPC-AUSA) serves as a liaison between America's Army and our local civilian communities throughout southern Colorado. We assist in educating the public about the needs for a strong National Defense, as well as the very signifcant economic impact our military presence has on our local communities and the state of Colorado. We seek and appreciate volunteer support from our Chapter Retirees, separated Veterans, and Concerned Citizens to foster U.S. Army and Soldier for Life values. As an effective means of demonstrating support for our Army, and to bring our military and civilian communities more closely together, corporations, businesses and organizations within southern Colorado are invited and encouraged to become PPC-AUSA Community Partner (CP) members. We strive for frequent, open communication between our Chapter and our CPs because CP support and participation are vital to the success of our Chapter programs, activites and events. Most importantly, we participate in a variety of programs and events in the support of our home station and deployed Soldiers and their families--active, Guard & Reserve.
