Kettering Health exec named president of military association

Jon Larrabee was sworn in as president of the Miami Valley Military Affairs Association at its annual dinner Nov. 29.

Larrabee is vice president of physician recruitment at Kettering Health Network, and is a past president of the Kettering Moraine Oakwood Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

“I am honored to serve as president of the MVMAA,” Larrabee said. “For more than 30 years I’ve had a passion for harnessing the collective resources of civic and business communities to better support the missions of the regional military institutions.”

The MVMAA was formed in 1980 through the combined efforts of several local Chambers of Commerce. Recognizing the tremendous economic impact Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Springfield Air National Guard Base, and other area military units have on the Greater Dayton/Miami Valley area, local community leaders wanted to provide a support organization that would foster military-community understanding and cooperation.
