Commissioners heard testimony from witnesses at a regional hearing on the closure and realignment of defense bases. Georgia officials and community leaders testified about recommended closures of Fort McPherson/Fort Gillem. 

Witnesses focused on base closure recommendations and the process by which the bases had been selected for closure. They pointed to flaws in the methodology used to evaluate the bases and their role in national security and defense infrastructure of the country as a whole. Others thanked the Defense Department for keeping other facilities open, promising that they would maintain viable communities for military bases. close
