Army close to making force structure decisions at U.S. bases
from Federal News Radio
It seems unlikely that Congress will go along with DOD's latest request to close stateside military bases, but in the case of the Army, many of the bases lawmakers are protecting would become a lot more sparsely-populated if the Budget Control Act stays in full force. Later this month, the Army will wrap up a listening tour it's been conducting at bases around the country as it prepares to draw up plans for how it would allocate its forces under full sequestration, which would push its already-planned drawdown from 570,000 to 450,000 soldiers to a yet-smaller force of 420,000.
