Closed bases open new doors? Expert: Localities could turn BRAC closures into success
BY PETER HARDIN RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH (VA) 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.)
