Official BRAC 2005 list, just released

Recommended Posts

This was mentioned in the Tucson paper the other day. However, the paper made it out that the air force base here, Davis-Monthan, would be all but shut down and Fort Huachuca could gain thousands of jobs.

Although I'm not thrilled with the base being in town, it's had the ironic effect of containing sprawl as a mass amount of prime land has gone undeveloped because it's right under the flight path.

whats the difference between numbers in parentheses and regular numbers?

My base is scheduled to be "realigned", and to lose about 110 military employees, if I read it right. So luckily, not much of a change here... considering this base employees several thousand military personnel.

Based on what I have seen in the Southern foum, I was sure that Ft. Gordon in GA would close.

RIP: Ft. McPherson, the home of Patton and the 3rd Army in WWII.
