Defense Officials to Lawmakers: Let Us Close Bases
 
Military.com | 7 Jun 2017 | by Amy Bushatz

Closing unneeded bases and relocating troops is the best way to make the most of limited military construction funding, a panel of top Pentagon installation officials told lawmakers Tuesday.

"We are asking for base realignment and closure funding once again this year, and that's important to us," said Peter Potochney, the Defense Department's acting assistant secretary for energy, installations and environment. "In the end, it allows us to validate the installations that remain so they can compete for the funding we expect in the future."

That's what really chaps me, they shut down bases and turn them into housing and parks and the military use is lost forever and new land for military is unobtanium.
