An agreement to better coordinate services for military personnel in San Bernardino County has been approved.

Under the terms, county service providers - such as preschool services, child support, work force development and veterans affairs - would better collaborate with three military bases in the region:

Marine Corps Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms.

National Training Center at Fort Irwin.

Marine Corps Logistics Base at Barstow.

The military hubs have 15,600 active-duty personnel, not including their families, which can utilize the services.

"While the military provides excellent services, the county administers many outstanding programs that can fill gaps or supplement needs of service members and their families," said 1st District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, who proposed the agreement.

The board approved it on Tuesday.

According to Mitzelfelt's office, military personnel who administer programs are often unaware of services available through the county, and there is often high turnover among those people.

The agreement requires only collaboration between the service agencies and the bases, where they can be of help.

It does not create any new programs or require more funding, according to a news release from Mitzelfelt's office.
