This study provides an analysis of the base closure and realignment process. It examines the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) and Navy Base Structure Committee (BSC) functions and actions. Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington is employed as a case analysis to gain insight into the process of evaluating the various factors that must be considered in the decision whether a base should be closed. The study also assesses the most likely and best options for NAS Whidbey in future rounds of base closure and realignment. This thesis draws upon previous research conducted by government, military and private organizations in analysis of the base closure process. It attempts to provide insight into the significant economic dependencies of many civilian communities on income generated by military bases. The conclusions and recommendations drawn from this research hopefully will prove useful to students of the base closure and realignment analysis and decision process in future years
