From The Headlines: The Future of Fort Monroe
On September 15, 2011, The US Army will close up all operations at Fort Monroe, the Colonial-era fortress at the tip of the Virginia Peninsula. The decision to close was part of the 2005 Base Closure and Realignment Commission aimed at cutting military costs. So what happens when the Army transfers the property to Virginia? Will it become a National Park? Will it be split so parts of the Fort will be preserved, and other parts developed? Join us on today's HearSay to discuss all the possibilities and share your thoughts.

 

Guests:
Terrie Suit - Fort Monroe Authority Board of Trustees Chairwoman
Mark Perrault - President, Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park
Steve Corneliussen - Vice-President, Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park
