Arlington 'VA 22202
Dear Chairman Princ4pi andBRAC Commissioners:
I am deeply troubedby the Defense Department's recommendation to close the
!Niagara yais Air Force Reserve base. iliis recommendation is a terrible
mistake andi urge the BRAC Commission to reverse this decision andremove
themfrom the (Cut.
It is hardto understandwhy the Air force has dkcidedto takepfanes, missions
andjobs away from so many Air 6uardandAir Reserve bases andput them on
the more costly Active Duty bases. Of aff the bases topicyk to ciose, how do you
ciose the base whose unit hefpedrescue Jessica Lynch in Iraq because they are
the eadnight vison C-13o unit in the reserves?
A o, how wilrthe Department defendthe region? Willfthe guardrespondto
man-made or natural disasters when they occur after these massive cuts?
I urge the Commission in the strongest possible terms to remove ffuagara gaffs
A B from the Pentagon's recommendedlfst of base closures andto stop the
continuing retreat of the military from our regwn of the country.
Here’s what’s next.
