ABILENE - THE FRONTIER SPIRIT
Abilene is centrally located along one of Texas's main thoroughfares. It is home to three major private universities and two public colleges. It also houses the host unit at Dyess Air Force Base is the 7th Bomb Wing assigned to the Global Strike Command Eighth Air Force and home to the B-1 Bomber. Capping off Abilene's desirability is the fact that two major hospital systems are headquartered there.
