Albany - Base closure is always a concern for military installations, but MCLB Albany isn't worried. Another base closure list will come out in 2005.

MCLB Albany Commandant Brigadier General Richard Kramlich says MCLB works to stay off the closure list. He explains, "If we do our mission, if we make ourselves efficient, effective and if we look at better business practices out there, which we already have in place, that will take care of itself."

The economic impact of the Albany Marine Base is close to a half billion dollars a year.
