The Htonorable James H. Bilbray
I am asking you to consider removing Cannon AFB from the closure list. Cannon
is and can always be an important part of the National Defense program, including
the supersonic program. Cannon AFB is not encroached by development and can
easily be expanded, and is in a strategic stopping off and refueling base for the
southern fly way across the USA. Closure of Cannon AFB would be more than
devastating to the surrounding communities and wouud remove 2!% of the work
force. ...devastating clovis, NM just like Roswell. NM was devastated when
Walker AFB was closed. Please consider this request.
Clovis, NM 88101
Here’s what’s next.
