During the 1993 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, Robins Air Force Base was added to the BRAC list for evaluation…a shock to the entire Middle Georgia region, as well as to the entire State of Georgia. At the insistence of Senator Sam Nunn, the 21st Century Partnership was hurriedly formed to defend Robins and thus the Middle Georgia area during the critical BRAC process. That massive organizational effort was spearheaded by community leaders such as George Israel, Bob Hatcher, Paul Nagle, Ralph Nix, Eddie Wiggins, Sherrill Stafford, Jack Steed, and many others. Mr Jack Steed was with the 21st Century Partnership in the beginning. 

 Jack Steed is pictured here at the Robins Air Force Base Appreciation Rally held at the Museum of Aviation on June 8, 1993.



He served 33 years of service in the United States Air Force. He retired from the Warner Robins Logistics Center as the Command Chief Master Sergeant, the first to have served in that capacity. He then served as the Vice President of Marketing for Bank South and a Director at Bank of America. Following those positions, Jack joined Nichols Cauley & Associates and was in charge of business development. Mr Jack Steed passed away in July of 2022.
