San Antonio Sees Military Base Prosper

SAN ANTONIO - Congressional orders that close and realign military bases 
are cause for panic in some communities, but not in San Antonio, which 
calls itself "Military City, USA."

The fifth and latest round of the Base Realignment and Closure ordered 
by Congress in 2005 includes an estimated $2.1 billion in renovations 
and construction at Army and Air Force installations here. The projects 
are to be completed by 2011.

Nearly 5,000 military jobs will be moved to the city, which already 
enjoys a large Defense Department presence.
