Admiral: Navy is not pushing for BRAC
Monday - 3/24/2014, 11:39am EDT
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- The Navy's top admiral says he doesn't see a great need for the Navy to go through another round of base closures.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert made the comments during a visit to Naval Station Mayport in Florida last week.
The Defense Department has requested Congress approve a new round of base closings to begin in 2017 to stop paying for unneeded infrastructure. While the Defense Department has not specified which bases might be targeted, Greenert says he doesn't see a lot of excess capacity in the Navy. He says the Navy has a good dispersion of fleet concentration areas in places like Virginia and Florida.
Army officials have said they support going through base closures to align their infrastructure needs with a declining force size.
