Closed bases open new doors?
Expert: Localities could turn BRAC closures into success

August 15, 2005

As a federal panel prepares to vote on whether to close Fort Monroe and Oceana Naval Air Station, many Virginians think the commission's acronym - BRAC - is a dirty, four-letter word.

Not Harry H. Kelso. Four-letter, he agrees. Dirty, no.

Kelso mixes lawyer and sleuth skills, helping localities and businesses make gains in a process that many think only produces economic pain.

His view is captured in the headline for an article he wrote last year: "BRAC: The Four-Letter Word That Really Means Base Redevelopment, Advantage, and Compensation."

"I don't think it's a dirty word," Kelso said in an interview about the often-used acronym for the defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission. (The panel previously had a name that in fact matched its acronym.)
