Pentagon Plans Massive Overhaul of Bases

Massive sorta. There are a lot of changes (the two volumes of the report
total about 750 pages) but the DoD is huge and much will remain unchanged.
Thank goodness for PDF documents; it only took me ten minutes to verify
that the 13 or so bases I work at will still be there. In fact, several of
them will be gaining personnel. My heart does go out to the people who
will lose their jobs, or have to transfer to another state to keep them.
Hey, what about the protesters who will have to commute because their
local base was realigned? It'd be a bummer to have to disrupt traffic
in front of a base three states away. Maybe there will be relocation funds
for displaced moonbats.
