Bush endorses base-closure list Metro | State: "President Bush today endorsed a list of base closures that would shutter 22 major military installations — including three in Texas — and realign 33 others for a savings of $35.5 billion.

Bush accepted the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission's recommendations in a letter to Congress, which now has 45 days to reject the proposals or allow them to become law.

Under the proposal, San Antonio would see the Air Force leave Brooks City-Base and a major realignment at Lackland AFB, including the closure of Wilford Hall Medical Center."
