Abstract : The current closure of Department of Defense bases and facilities in the United States results from two basic policies currently in favor with the executive and legislative branches of the government. The first and most important policy is the desire to reduce the expenses of the Department of Defense, which has a significant affect on the overall budget of the United States. The second policy results from the desire to develop and coordinate an organized approach to determining and providing for our overall defense needs. This policy is based on evaluation of what is called the 'Force-Structure Plan,' which is the overall strategy for determining how many forces of which types, placed where, are needed to protect the national security interests of the United States.
