Fort Rucker Visitor

The Secretary of the Army made his first ever visit to Fort Rucker Monday.

During the visit, the Honorable Les Brownlee says he wants to go ahead with the base realignment and closings in 2005 as scheduled.

Brownlee would not comment directly about Fort Rucker’s chances in BRAC.

He did say they are looking for installations that are in supportive communities where training is good and there is plenty of room for growth.

Brownlee also said Army Aviation is playing a critical role in the global war on terrorism.
