Welcome to Rome

A Special Welcome from the CAF Community in Rome

Welcome to Rome Sweet Home!
Rome, New York is located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, in Central New York’s Mohawk Valley.  The area is full of history, full of amazing outdoor recreation opportunities, an easy drive to several major US cities, and still so close to Canada.     
About the Canadian Detachment
The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have been contributing to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) mission at the Eastern Air Defense Sector (EADS) since 1994.  When Griffiss AFB in Rome closed in 1995, two US Air Force activities remained in the area -- EADS, operated by the New York Air National Guard, and the Rome Research Site of the Air Force Research Laboratory.  Today, 15 CAF members work at EADS.  The local military and business communities are extremely welcoming of the Canadian Det, and even fly the Canadian flag. 

Please CONTACT your Local MFS Team Member as soon as you start the screening process. We look forward to helping you make the most of your OUTCAN posting in Rome!
