The article discusses the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). It is said that such process of the U.S. government is an important way to save money as well as realign forces for the future. However, soldiers reportedly believe that it is a decision that relies on many aspects of the soldiers' lives such as school-age children, spouses' jobs, and even the housing market. According to Dr. Susan Duncan, assistant G-1 for civilian personnel, the moves will offer new positions and promotion opportunities.
