Army Outlines European Base Closure Plan

May 9/10, 2005

WASHINGTON -- The planned withdrawal of tens of thousands of U.S. troops
from Europe would reduce by nearly one-half the number of bases
maintained by the Army in Europe, a senior Defense Department official
said Monday.

Ray DuBois, the acting undersecretary of the Army, told a Pentagon news
conference that savings gained from abandoning those bases will be
reinvested in new facilities for soldiers at U.S. bases.

DuBois said the Army has calculated exactly which brigades and other
units are to move back to the United States, "by quarter, by fiscal
year," and has proposed to Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld which
U.S. bases they would be moved to. DuBois declined to disclose more
details, saying Rumsfeld was "still chewing over" some of the recommendations.
