Pentagon Seeks to Close 33 Major Military Bases

The Pentagon recommends closing 33 major bases and realigning another 29. In total, it seeks to shut more than 150 military installations. The government estimates the cuts would result in a net loss of 29,000 military and civilian jobs at a savings of nearly $49 billion over 20 years. It is the first round of base closings proposed in a decade.
