Lightning Bolt

Tampa, Florida


The Lightning Bolt Chapter is located in Tampa, Florida and encompasses members from U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM), Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and the surrounding area.  Symbolically, lightning, or “fire from the heavens,” is a flash which appears to come out of nowhere in order to instantly awaken new thoughts and ideas within us.  According to for U.S. cities with more than half a million people, Tampa, Florida ranks #1 as the city with the most lightning strikes. As the lightning leader, our Chapter adopts the lightning bolt as our symbol representing the flash or awakening of the Adjutant General’s Corps in the Tampa Bay area.
