Admiral Harold W. Gehman, .Jr,
I am very concerned about thet BRAC Commission's decision to close Cannon Air Force
I do not believe the Commission is fully aware of the unique attributes that Cannon offers
to our national defense. These inclI de an abundance of air space and no encroachment
issues, a bombing range that i:s only seconds away, the airspace to fly at supersonic
speeds, and ideal year-round flying weather, among many others.
In addition to the military value to the nation, Cannon has been supported over the last 50
years by the local communities -like no other in the country. We consider Cannon a part
The closure of Cannon will also have a devastating impact on our economy. It has been
estimated that the area will losec at least 20 percent oF its workforce, phus the ripple effect
that we will have on our public and higher education systems.
Please reconsider all the facts before making your final decision.
