Welcome Armed Forces!
Northwest Florida supports three military installations; Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field and Duke Field collectively on the largest base in the world: Eglin Air Force Base. These three installations are collectively known as the Eglin Complex. This expansive military presence is the primary contributor in Okaloosa’s growing economy. These local bases support over 60,000 active military civilian and military dependants in our economy. Due to this presence there is a greater density of technology-based and defense contracting firms located within the county.
