Dear Chairman Principi,
North Carolina fully supports the BRAC process and the role of the BRAC
commission in reviewing the proposals from the Department of Defense and determining
if they meet the BRAC stat ate and criteria. We are delighted that DOD has recognized
the incredible value of North Carolina's military installations and has proposed moving
additional military forces and capabilities to these installations.
I appreciated the opportunity to participate in the regional BRAC hearing in
Charlotte on June 28, 2005, and during that hearing, the commissioners asked questions
about the proposal to realign Pope AFB. As you know, we are concerned about the
proposal to shut down the 43rd Airlift Wing and transfer the installation and the airfield
functions to the Army. With this letter, I am submitting on behalf of the representatives
of the Fayetteville commun-ty their response to the commission's questions along with
additional information which substantiates our concerns.
This BRAC round offers a tremendous opportunity to establish a joint base
Bragg/Pope that would meet all OSD BRAC guidance for joint training and basing
opportunities. Please closely review these points and consider the potential degradation
to our nation's 911 Crisis Response Force if these team is dissolved. Thank you for all
the time and effort you are devoting to reviewing the BRAC process and considering our
With much gratitude,
