Could Another Round of BRAC Threaten Local Bases?

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Pentagon has been asked to cut nearly $500 billion over the next 10 years, which could mean another round of Base Realignment and Closures, or BRAC.

The order came from President Barack Obama and the Secretary of Defense.

So does that mean that our two military installations, Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi and Naval Air Station-Kingsville, could be in the crosshairs?

Foster Edwards, President and CEO of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce, joined 3news to talk about the possibility of BRAC's return.
