Recommended Military Closings will affect Heartland

Recommended Military Closings will affect Heartland
By: Heartland News & The Associated Press

The Department of Defense has announced its recommended military closings. There are three Heatland reserve centers on the list. But only the following two face bing closed:

  • Navy Reserve Center, Cape Girardeau
  • Army National Guard Reserve Center, Paducah

Other reserve centers in Marion, Fairfield, Centralia, Salem and Cairo may also close. According to the Department of Defense these centers may consolodate into two new reserve centers in Carbondale and Mt. Vernon.

Illinois would lose nearly 2,700 military and civilian jobs under base closures recommended today by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. But the state's major military installations would remain open. Scott Air Force Base in the Metro East emerged as the big winner -- gaining almost 800 jobs. But some of Illinois' operations didn't fare as well. Great Lakes Naval Training Center in North Chicago is slated to lose more than two-thousand jobs, while the Rock Island Arsenal would lose about 1,200. The National Guard station at Capital Airport in Springfield would also be realigned, costing it about 160 jobs, while Peoria's National Guard station would gain about 30 positions.

Kentucky would lose more than five-thousand military jobs, but gain nearly 1,500 civilian jobs under the Pentagon's recommendations for this year's round of base closures. Fort Knox would take the biggest hit in Kentucky, losing more than 48-hundred military jobs, while gaining about 1,700 civilian employees. Fort Campbell would lose 360 military jobs, but gain nine civilians under the Pentagon's recommendations. The list also showed several small facilities closing in the state, including the Defense Finance and Accounting Service in Lexington, the Navy Reserve Center in Lexington, and the US Army Reserve Centers in Louisville and Maysville. Together those closures would lead to the loss of 146 military and civilian jobs. The Air Guard Station at the Louisville International Airport would gain six civilian jobs under the Pentagon's plan. The Blue Grass Army Depot at Richmond was not on the list for realignment or closure.

Other Missouri facilities on the list are:

  • Army National Guard Reserve Center, Jefferson Barracks
  • Defense Finance and Accounting Service, Kansas City
  • Defense Finance and Accounting Service, St. Louis
  • Marine Corps Support Center, Kansas City
  • Navy Recruiting District Headquarters, Kansas

The Pentagon's list will be reviewed by a nine-member commission before going to President Bush by September.
