The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission began deliberations on the list of U.S. military installations proposed for closure by the Department of Defense. Earlier in 1991, the Department of Defense announced plans to reduce the personnel in the U.S. military 25 percent by 1996 due to budget restraints and a fundamental restructuring of the U.S. military following the end of the Cold War. Accompanying the reduction in manpower, the Department released a list of military installations proposed for closure. The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission was appointed to investigate the list and make recommendations on base closings to President Bush by July 1. The commission discussed several bases on the list for closure, and began weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each military base compared to others performing similar functions. Discussion included several air force installations. close
