MilitaryByOwner Advertising Inc. recognizes that military life has many components and while we focus our efforts on helping service members secure off-base military housing, we thoroughly enjoy supporting various avenues of the military network and the opportunity to introduce ourselves to military families. It is this desire, which has led us to sponsor Army Wife Network’s (AWN) “Field Exercise”™ for over four years now. 

“Our relationship with Army Wife Network has broadened our knowledge on the specific challenges that Army spouses face and has allowed us the offer support and services vital to frequent military relocation”, explains Sharon Gran, President of MilitaryByOwner Advertising, Inc.  “We enjoy supporting the efforts of Tara & Star and thank them for allowing us to introduce ourselves to the attendees of their Field Exercise™ events.”

We recently received a suggestion to add the US Coast Guard Air Station, located in beautiful San Francisco, California to the list of base page selections.  While researching the Air Station, we noticed several Coast Guard facilities all within close range of each other.  Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco is located 13 miles south of downtown at the San Francisco International Airport in an unincorporated area of San Mateo County.  The cities of San Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame and San Mateo are all nearby as well as the East Side neighborhood and the area known as South San Francisco.   Air Station San Francisco has been located adjacent to the San Francisco International Airport since 1941 and since that time its primary mission has remained unchanged, namely, maritime Search and Rescue along 300 miles of coastline from Point Conception to Fort Bragg.   You will find Coast Guard San Francisco on our map of Military Homes in California.
