Commission Votes to Spare Sub Base, Army Depot

The Base Closure and Realignment Commission overrules the Pentagon's decision to close the Submarine Base New London in Connecticut and the Red River Army Depot in Texas. The commission is also keeping open the Portsmouth shipyard at Kittery, Maine. The commission agreed with the Pentagon's plan to close many other military bases and installations, including four in Georgia.
