Junior Enlisted Appreciation Picnic (JEAP)

<- back

For the past 27 years, MAC has co-hosted the annual Junior Enlisted Picnic.  The MAC and the Space Coast Top 3 Association jointly sponsor the event to allow junior enlisted personnel (E-6 and below) to enjoy a half-day of relaxation and fun at the PAFB Beach House.

The junior enlisted personnel & their families are served a barbeque lunch by the Top 3 unit commanders and the 45th Space Wing command staff.  This increases Junior Enlisted morale not only across the 45th Space Wing, but all Services serving along the Space Coast.  The event is attended annually by approximately 600 active duty personnel in the Air Force, Navy and Marines and Army, Navy and Air Force National Guard and Reserves.  MAC coordinates donations ranging from gift certificates for dry cleaning to weekend stays at local hotels along Cocoa Beach.  Raffles are held throughout the afternoon of prizes donated by MAC Chamber Partners.
