WASHINGTON – The Pentagon's plan to close military bases is expected to affect states by causing job losses or gains. The following is a snapshot of how each state may be affected.
Alabama — The state has escaped major military base closings. Redstone Arsenal, Fort Rucker and Anniston Army Depot would gain jobs under the plan, but Maxwell Air Force bases would lose posts as they have been marked for realignment.
Alaska — The Kulis Air National Guard Station in Anchorage is on the Pentagon’s list of proposed closures. The Alaska Air National Guard has been on the site since 1955 when it moved out of Elmendorf Air Force Base. It is a major military base for the United States.
Arizona — The Air Force Research Lab in Mesa and the Allen Hall Armed Forces Reserve Center in Tucson have been slated for closure.
Arkansas — The state got a mixed bag from the Pentagon, with the proposed increase of 4,000 personnel at Little Rock Air Force Base and the planned closure of the Red River Army Depot in Texas, whose 2,500 employees include about 500 workers from Arkansas. Only two small reserve centers in Arkansas are on the closure list, which would cause a loss of 59 employees.
California — Several military installations are indicated for closure, although the most prominent bases would be spared. Slated for closure are the Concord Naval Weapons Station, the Navy-Marine Corps Reserve Center in Encino, the Navy-Marine Corps Reserve Center in Los Angeles and the Onizuka Air Force Station in Santa Clara County.
Colorado — No military bases are on the list of closures. The only installation planned to be closed is a very small office in Denver that handles paperwork. Buckley Air Force Base, Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base and Shriver Air Force Base stand to gain jobs.
Connecticut — The U.S. Naval Submarine Base in Groton is on the Pentagon’s list of proposed base closures, as is a U.S. Army Reserve Center in New Haven and an Air Guard station at Bradley International Airport. Some argue that the submarine base, which was built in 1872 as the Navy’s first, is crucial to the region because of its $2.5 billion effect on the economy. It is home to 18 attack submarines and the Naval submarine school. Military members, their families and civilian employees total 21,000, with about 6,000 active military also in the area.
Delaware — The state faces a very mixed bag. Dover Air Force Base is expected to take on several new operations, gaining 250 jobs at the expense of the Delaware Air National Guard, which would lose planes and personnel from its 166th Air Wing Facility. Delaware's governor states that the realignment of the Air Guard bases is, in essence, a closure.
Florida — All major military installations would remain open, although some might undergo realignment. The state would gain more than 2,700 personnel at the 13 bases affected.
Georgia — Four military bases, the Navy Supply Corps School in Athens, Fort Gillem, Fort McPherson and the Naval Air Station in Atlanta, are being recommended for closure.
Hawaii — Only one installation in Hawaii has been recommended for closure: the Big Island’s Army National Guard Reserve Center in Honokaa. Hawaii was spared the worst, as no major military bases are slated to be closed.
Idaho — The state will face losing 659 jobs at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho's largest military installation. The state has a net loss of 538 military jobs and 31 civilian jobs at Mountain Home. A realignment of Air National Guard in Boise would take 83 jobs: 22 military and 61 civilians.
Illinois — The state stands to lose nearly 2,700 military and civilian jobs, but no major facilities in the state would close under the recommendations. The Great Lakes Naval Training Center north of Chicago would lose more than 2,000 jobs, but Scott Air Force Base would gain 800 jobs.
Indiana — The Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center would remain open, but about 670 of its 4,000 jobs would be cut under the Pentagon’s proposed realignment; however, nearly 3,400 jobs are being added to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service at the former Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis. That center has about 3,000 civilian workers. No major Indiana bases were indicated for closure.
Iowa — The Rock Island Arsenal, one of the largest government-owned weapons-manufacturing arsenals in the world, is slated to lose about 1,200 civilian jobs. The facility is crucial to the area’s economy and employment, and Sen. Tom Harkin claimed that “Rock Island Arsenal is essential to our national security.” The arsenal produces many of the weapons used in Iraq.
Kansas — The state would gain a huge boost from the Pentagon's base closure plan. The First Infantry Division is expected to return to Fort Riley from its headquarters in Germany, bringing another 2,415 military personnel and 440 civilians to the area. Even though several other small bases are being closed, Kansas would gain 3,318 military personnel and 423 civilian employees.
Kentucky — The state would take a huge hit under the Pentagon’s proposal, losing more than 4,800 military jobs while gaining only 1,700 civilian employees.
Louisiana — A century-old naval base in New Orleans has been marked for closure, threatening an economic engine worth $142 million in payroll. But another Louisiana base, the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Plaguemines Paris, is slated to be expanded by 1,700 workers. Some of these workers might simply be moving from the New Orleans base, Sen. David Vitter said.
Maine — The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard has been marked for closure, and the mission of the Brunswick Naval Air Station is proposed to be changed. “It’s going to be hard to get jobs because there aren’t any good-paying jobs like there are in the shipyard,” said Walter Wheeler, a Maine state representative who worked at the shipyard for 24 years.
Maryland — Gov. Robert Ehrlich said the initial review of the nations’ base-closing and restructuring list “indicates an extremely positive net outcome for Maryland.” The state would reap the greatest gain, with an increase of more than 9,200 jobs.
Massachusetts — The Otis Air National Guard Base at Cape Cod has been slated for closure. There are also Coast Guard and Army National Guard facilities there, and other emergency responders in the region use the area for training. Hanscom Air Force Base, northwest of Boston, stands to gain personnel, and the Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick would remain open.
Michigan — The state faces one recommended closure: Air Guard Station in Battle Creek. The Detroit Arsenal in Warren and Selfridge Air National Guard Base would gain jobs, ultimately benefiting the state. Under the plan, Michigan would gain 125 jobs.
Minnesota — The Defense Department is proposing to move 254 workers from Fort Snelling and close a Duluth Naval Reserve Center. Several hundred jobs would be moved along with those taken from Snelling. The realignment targets the 88th Regional Readiness Command and not the other units at Snelling.
Mississippi — The Pentagon recommended closing Naval Station Pascagoula, the U.S. Army Reserve Center at Vicksburg and the Mississippi Army Ammunition plant in Hancock. Mississippi has a history of defending its military installations against Pentagon closure plans, and officials in Jackson County said they would fight to keep the bases open. Overall, Mississippi would lose several hundred jobs if the Pentagon's plans go through.
Missouri — Major military bases survived the latest round of base-closing proposals, although many jobs might not. Whiteman Air Force Base near Sedalia and Fort Leonard Wood near Waynesville would remain intact, though other smaller installations would close, costing the state more than 3,000 military and civilian jobs.
Montana — The Pentagon did not call for Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls to be closed but recommended that the Montana Air National Guard’s F-16’s fighter jets be reassigned or retired. Three planes would be sent to Alabama and three others to Iowa; the rest would be retired. The Montana Air National Guard has about 1,000 employees.
Nebraska — Several military reserve centers have been marked to be closed, and 213 jobs would be eliminated: 165 civilian jobs, 42 military jobs and 6 contractor jobs. Army Reserve centers in Columbus, Grand Island Kearny, as well as the Naval recruiting distract headquarters in Omaha and Navy Reserve Center in Lincoln are under the proposed closures.
Nevada — The Army Ammunition Depot in Hawthorne was recommended for closure by the Pentagon, and other military bases in the state would be realigned or gain personnel and responsibilities. The realigning would result in the loss of 147 jobs. The ammunition is the town’s largest employer.
New Hampshire — Supporters are already planning a fight to get the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard off of the list of recommended closures. The Shipyard is integral to the area's economy.
New Jersey — Fort Monmouth has been recommended for closure; however, none of New Jersey’s six other bases were targeted for closure. Several would gain jobs: Picatinny Arsenal, McGuire Air Force Base and the 177th Fighter Wing in Atlantic County.
New Mexico — Cannon Air Force Base near Clovis is on the Pentagon’s list of recommended closures. The proposal would also mean some small gains for Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque and realignments at Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Range near Clovis.
New York — The state's largest active military post was spared major cuts and learned a temporary brigade would become permanent. Fort Drum would lose 14 jobs. Losing the base would have devastated the area, where unemployment is high, even with 14,600 civilian and military jobs being provided by the post. As many as 80,000 troops train at Fort Drum each year.
North Carolina — Pope Air Force Base would lose 4,800 troops under the proposal. Also affected is a Navy Reserve center in Asheville and an Army Reserve center in Albemarle, resulting in a loss of 41 positions. Fort Bragg would gain 4,078 troops. The military is one of the region’s major economic drivers, contributing $18 billion annually to North Carolina’s economy.
North Dakota — Grand Forks Air Force Base has not been marked for closure, but it would be realigned. It would lose 2,290 military personnel and 355 civilians under the realignment. The Minot Air Force Base and the Fargo Air National Guard Base are not slated for closure or realignment.
Ohio — An Air National Guard base in Mansfield is slated for closure and a military finance center in Cleveland is under plans for realignment. The state would gain several hundred jobs, but the Air National Guard’s closing would result in the loss of 1,060 jobs.
Oklahoma — No major military bases were included on the list, and several bases would gain personnel. Fort Sill Army Post would gain 3,500 workers, Tinker Air Force Base would see an increase of 400 and Vance Air Force Base would gain 100.
Oregon — The state would lose more than 1,000 military personnel and all Portland-based F-15 fighter jets would be transferred to other states under a major base closure and a realignment plan. The Umatilla Depot would be closed, resulting in the loss of 512 employees. The Portland International Airport would lose 564 employees.
Pennsylvania — The Pentagon plans to close two military bases in Pennsylvania: The 911th Airlift Wing Air Force base near Pittsburgh and the Willow Grave Naval Air Station near Philadelphia.
Rhode Island — Two bases have been marked for closure, but jobs would also be added across the state. In Newport, 525 military positions and 84 civilian jobs would be added. But the Harwood Army Reserve Center in Providence and the US Army Reserve Center in Bristol have been marked for closure.
South Carolina — Two military bases in Charleston would close, taking away 800 jobs. Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, however, would get an additional 742 military personnel and 75 civilian personnel. Fort Jackson in Columbia and McEntire Air National Guard Station in Eastover would gain personnel.
South Dakota — Ellsworth Air Force Base near Rapid City has been recommended for closure. According to the plan, Ellsworth would lose all 3,852 airman and civilian workers assigned to it. The Joe Foss Field Air Guard Station in Sioux Falls would gain 55 military and civilian workers. Ellsworth has 29 B-1B bombers, half the nation's fleet.
Texas — The state has four bases marked for closure: the Naval Station Ingleside, Brooks City Base, Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant and Red River Army Depot. Several smaller military installations have been recommended for closure. But across the state, Texas would gain 9,000 military jobs. Nearly a quarter-million uniformed personnel and civilians are connected with the state’s 18 major military installations, pumping about $43 billion a year into the state's economy. Since 1988, 17 Texas military bases have been closed and several others realigned.
Tennessee — More than 1,000 military and civilian jobs could be gained under the recommendations. While moving an attack aviation battalion to Kansas would destroy 748 jobs, the Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington stands to gain 372 military jobs and 601 civilian jobs.
Utah — The Department of Defense has recommended closing the Deseret Chemical Depot and offered only a slight realignment for Hill Air Force Base. This won’t destroy the Utah economy, but the Hill Air Force Base contributes an estimated $4 billion in annual economic impact and accounts for 24,000 jobs. The realignment would only cause a net loss of 145 jobs at Hill.
Vermont — The Air National Guard received good news from the Pentagon, as it is not targeted for closing. In addition, the Pentagon is planning on expanding the base by adding 56 positions and three new F-16s.
Virginia — U.S. Rep. Jim Moran said that even though the Pentagon’s closing recommendations weren’t as devastating as they could have been, he will still fight them. Fort Belvoir would gain thousands of jobs, but Moran said he still will fight the closings of offices as the “synergy” between the offices and the Pentagon would be difficult to achieve on a military base.
Washington — The state would gain nearly 800 military personnel, and no major bases in the state would be closed. The biggest winners would be Naval Station Bremerton, which would gain 1,400 personnel, and Fort Lewis, which would see an increase of 230; however, not all benefited: McChord Air Force Base would lose 567 employees.
Wisconsin — The 440th Airlift Wing has been marked for closure. Fort McCoy was not on the closure list, although the Pentagon recommends it be realigned, most likely resulting in a loss of jobs.
Wyoming — The largest military installation in the state, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, would be unaffected by the Pentagon’s plans. Small facilities would be closed, but overall Wyoming would gain 37 positions.
