Red River Army Depot to stay open

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "The commission considering military base closures voted Wednesday to realign the Red River Army Depot in East Texas instead of shutting it down, sparing the Texarkana area's largest employer.

The Pentagon had recommended closing the depot, which repairs Humvees and Bradley Fighting Vehicles, refurbishes missiles, and makes rubber pads for armored vehicle treads. But the Base Closure and Realignment Commission decided to retain the work on Humvees and Bradleys and move other work elsewhere.

Also Wednesday, the commission approved a Pentagon proposal to move a 4th Infantry Division combat brigade and headquarters team from Fort Hood to Colorado."
