Don't hear too much about BRAC anymore. If the DoD gets all this money maybe they will forget about closing bases.

The DoD isn't closing bases because it's broke. It's closing bases because they are not needed and they are a drain on money that could be put to better use elsewhere.

There have been multiple BRAC periods. There will likely be another in 3033 or something.

Especially f the Army goes through with a 20% downsizing of forces that as talked about a few years ago.

I read yesterday that BRAC is off the table for now. Particularly since they are planning on increasing the size of the forces.
