I've already been told that my army reserve unit in Cadiz, OH will be shutting down sometime in 2006... hopefully I'll have a chance to change my job when I switch units

Whew!
My job is safe! (Thank God) I work at NAS Patuxent River as a contractor. The DFAS closing will just affect the military personal who work here.

As much as I support the military, a lot of these bases do not need to exist. Why the hell do we need a base here in Westerville? Its not even really a base, just a waste of money. That money would be better spend elsewhere.

Yeah...its been on the news here all morning. My base is not shutting down/closing, but they are doing the reallignment portion to it. Meaning Ellsworth B1's will be coming here to dyess, and my C130 unit will be going buh-bye. Pisses me off in a way...where am I going to get to go?

The new Moon NASA/Airforce base.

I live near March Air Reserve Base here in California, and they have been discussing plans of reducing the land used by the base as much as 70%. There are about 16 large transport planes that operate here and that fleet will be cut down to 8. Some senior pilots have opted to retire instead of being relocated again.

Also, DHL and UPS are competing for the lease on the vacated property. 16 transports we can deal with. But if UPS or DHL takes over, this place will be buzzing with a lot more planes. Not sure if the locals would like that.

Do military personnel on closed bases get laid off like civilans? or do they get reassigned to other stations?

Faith brother , gotta have faith, been here since '91 through six different companies.Aviation contract maintenace is a ***** in itself without having to worry about base closures.We are the only base to be on all the previous lists and survived all of them.A show of excellance in all areas and community spirit can beat the government.When it came down to it our presentation was better than the Pentagons.

Re assigned to a new post
Yup...what he said. I just watched the news (local) and they say that our planes (C130s) are going to be split up between Little Rock, Elmendorf and Petterson AFB's. Altho' if they give me an option...I want Barksdale in Bossier City LA. If I have to go with the 130's...then I would rather Little Rock. But they did say that it is still not official...Bush has to sign all the papers and what not. Plus we won't start to see a "transition" for about 2-6 years.

On Leno Monologue last night. . .

On a related note, the Kansas City Royals have also announced the closing of 1st Base, 2nd Base and 3rd Base, since they have no use for them.

(Btw, the Royals are the worst team in baseball)
