With 14 military installations spread across 17 local jurisdictions, Hampton Roads has the highest concentration of military assets in the country. One in six residents are associated with our nation’s defense. Our homes, schools, hospitals, and families are increasingly struggling to keep up with the effects of rising waters, and the military and all the surrounding municipalities are working towards a solution in the name of strengthening national security and enhancing economic prosperity. Tidewater examines the innovative problem-solving model being attempted by local and military leaders, and it explores how these strategies can ensure the continued strength of our national security, along with the prosperity of the region and the nation.
