Abstract:

The Department of Defense is reducing its military force to adapt to changes in the strategic environment and fiscal constraints. The Army will have six fewer active divisions, which represents a 33 percent reduction. This reduction includes closing those bases and installations that are no longer needed to support the force structure. Base closure will remain an important issue in the Armys future. This study discusses the history of Base Realignment and Closure BRAC legislation and its impact on the Army community and a cost analysis trying to determine what base closure will cost. Fort Ord, California, is used as a model to determine if base closure and realignment is the most cost effective way to reuse our unneeded bases and installations. It is our requirement to provide land and installations so the communities we leave can enjoy and use these facilities.
