You’ve probably heard San Antonio referred to as Military City USA. Now it’s official.
“You asked us to brand it and we took it a step further and trademarked the phrase Military City USA,” City Manager Sheryl Sculley announced at Thursday’s city council meeting.
She says it was an 8-month process because they had to make sure that no other city had applied for and received a trademark.
“Often times the city of San Diego, Jacksonville and Colorado Springs sporadically refer to themselves as military cities to honor their large military in communities, but in March of this year we registered and trademarked San Antonio as Military City USA,” she said.
The city’s graphics staff is working on a logo.
Joint Base San Antonio includes Lackland, also known as Gateway to the Air Force, Fort Sam Houston, and Randolph.
