The Base Realignment and Closure process begins this month with the announcement of BRAC commission members. The committee is charged with recommending military installations for closure or realignment.
The Clovis News Journal is publishing a daily Q&A on BRAC-related issues. If you have a question, please submit it to Editor David Stevens at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q Why does the Department of Defense believe BRAC is necessary?
A The DoD’s Web site reports: “The Department will be able to divest itself of unnecessary installation infrastructure and use the resultant savings for improving fighting capabilities and quality of life for military forces. This will allow the Department to rationalize installation infrastructure with 21st century national security imperatives.”
