Military Matters

Posted by: perry 3/10/2014 11:15 PM

Military Matters
Could closing a local military base actually help Virginia?  It's the question on many minds after a recent report was issued by The Commission on Military Installations and Defense Activities. The report suggests that the state would stand to gain more than it loses by embracing BRAC, which stands for Base Realignment and Closure.  We'll consider the question today and invite you to weigh in on other issues impacting our region's military community, including newly proposed cuts to military commissaries and the 2015 Pentagon budget.

Scheduled Guests:
Craig Quigley
 - Executive Director, Hampton Roads Military and Federal Facilities Alliance
