From the
Six Years of Making BRAC History 
 
 When the 2005 BRAC legislationbecame law, it marked the culmination o a transormation process that had been un-derway since 1990 to reduce the Deenseinrastructure commensurate with thesmaller, more agile, post-Cold War orce.Four previous BRAC rounds had disposedo 209,000 acres o surplus property, butthe 2005 round would be much dierentrom the others.BRAC 2005 would close more ex-cess property—Active and Reserve—butthe main ocus was to extensively realignthe inrastructure to better support thetransorming operational and generatingorce. It would allow or consolidation andalignment o missions and unctions, toinclude the reserve component; it wouldaccommodate troops returning rom over-seas acilities; it would allow or joint bas-ing and joint centers o excellence; and it would incorporate the lessons o years o extended deployments to maximize sup-port to Soldiers and Families.The 2005 BRAC implementationis now coming to ruition, bringing the Army installations into alignment with theoperational orce, which is nearly through with its restructuring and transormation.This realignment is proving highly success-ul in improving processes and providingopportunities or cost saving. It is threetimes larger than the previous our roundscombined, and it has touched nearly every Soldier, Army Civilian employee andFamily member in some way—many inlie-changing ways.This journal issue is devoted toBRAC—where we’ve been, how wegot here, what we’ve learned at theHeadquarters and installation levels. We’restarting with summary articles rom the Army and IMCOM Headquarters level,as well as our BRAC partners in the Corpso Engineers, the National Guard andthe Army Reserve. All have dierent per-spectives on what we’ve been through inimplementing BRAC, and we can learnrom their experience. Articles rom the in-stallations represent those most impactedin terms o population growth or loss, orby major realignment o their missionsand unctions, or by exposure to varyingdegrees o jointness.No one can tell the BRAC successstory better than Fort Bliss, which posi-tioned itsel or growth, asked or it, andgot it—their story is included here. ButBliss was not the only installation that saw growth under BRAC. Redstone Arsenal wrote an article about the partnershipsinside and outside their gates that werekey to approaching the growth they areexperiencing. Fort Lee more than doubledin size, becoming the Army’s Home o Sustainment, and their article covers the journey that they have been on or six years.In the realignment arena, Fort Knoxhas long been identiied as the ArmorCenter and School, but traded that iden-tity to become a multi-unction base thatsupports a Reserve brigade while also be-coming the Human Resource Center o Excellence. They have an article here, asdoes Fort Benning, which will providethe Armor School its new home on a sus-tainable sub-installation, aligned with theInantry School to create the new ManeuverCenter. Benning’s story is here too.Realignment pervades the Army andall the services as many acilities and unc-tions have been consolidated across servicelines to acilitate training and streamlineunctions. Fort Bragg incorporated Pope Air Force Base as the irst Army airield runby the Air Force, and shares that story here.Detroit Arsenal writes about using BRACas an opportunity to develop new relation-ships with their customers and partners within the new paradigm o a cost culturepervading Army Materiel Command.We have those mentioned and many more, and although we can’t include every one o the success stories, we’ve capturedenough to convey the magnitude andthe importance o this latest and biggestBRAC round. Read it and be amazed at what we’ve accomplished in six years.
