Abstract:

The Department of Defense Secretarys Commission on Base Realignment and Closure was chartered May 3, 1988, to recommend installations for realignment and closure. Cost reduction and military value are the two primary factors considered in selecting installations for either realignment activity or closure. As a result, Sheppard Air Force Base Texas was one Base selected for realignment activity. A portion of training mission operations aircraft engine, propulsion, maintenance and aircrew life-support training courses will be relocated from Chanute Air Force Base, Illinois, to Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas. The purpose of this document is to assess the biological and socioeconomic impacts in accordance with United States Air Force Policy Guidance, the National Environmental Policy Act, and other pertinent environmental assessment requirements. Under Air Force guidance, no alternatives to the realignment activity are to be evaluated.
