Army BRAC-2005 Media Opening statement by MG Keith Thurgood

“Army BRAC has resulted not only in greater effectiveness and efficiency, but also in significant economic opportunities for the states in which our installations and facilities are located. With just under $18 billion invested in construction and related areas, this is three times more than all four previous Army BRAC rounds combined. BRAC has produced tremendous economic impacts for regional economies as well as the states and the communities which adjoin our installations.”

The Honorable Ms. Katherine Hammack

“While change and transformation is never easy, the challenge of BRAC 2005 is no exception. The Army Reserve seized the opportunity that BRAC provided to propel our transformation and the things that we’re doing from a strategic force and traditional way of thinking to an operational force supporting combatant commanders, and the current fight both on a regular, rotational basis.”

Maj. Gen. Keith Thurgood
