Officials: Base merger will save money
Question of the Day
HAMPTON, Va. — Two Virginia military bases will merge next month, but officials say little will change in the short term.
Langley Air Force Base in Hampton and Fort Eustis in Newport News will become Joint Base Langley-Eustis starting Jan. 31.
Military officials say the process of combining operations is expected to last through October.
Col. Kevin Altman, commander of the 1st Mission Support Group at Langley, said the merger is not designed to reduce the number of military personnel or civilian workers at the bases.
Instead, he says it’s a way to become more efficient and save money in the long term.
About 16,000 soldiers and Air Force service members are stationed at the bases.
