The 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission continued final deliberations before submitting its report to the president on September 8, 2005. Commissioners heard from staff members on Defense Department recommendations and made motions for changes to the recommendations

In the morning of the second day of the final hearings, motions focused on recommendations for Joint Cross Service Groups. Mr. Van Saun and his analysts completed analyses of the seven joint cross service groups of the Department of Defense: education and training, headquarters and support, industrial, intelligence, medical, supply and storage, and technical.

The Commission considered such issues as the relocation of the Aviation and Logistics School, the consolidation of Air Force and Army transportation management training programs at Fort Lee (VA), and the establishment of an initial training site for the joint strike fighter.

Bases considered for realignment included Maxwell Air Force Base (Montgomery, AL), Naval Air Station Meridian (MS), Naval Station Newport (RI), and McChord Air Force Base (WA).
