Council Formed To Protect Nevada's Military
Council Formed To Protect Nevada's Military

AIR DATE: October 11, 2013

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has created a statewide council to prepare Nevada to fight off the closure of U.S. military bases or installations in Nevada, which may be coming in 2015. Sandoval said he ordered formation of the Governor's Military Council to coordinate efforts "to protect and expand" military assets in Nevada, which includes active-duty military bases as well as reserve units and National Guard units.

Nellis Air Force Base, Creech Air Force Base, the Fallon Naval Air Station and the Hawthorne Army depot are the principal military sites in Nevada.

Air Force Brig. Gen. William Burks, who heads the Nevada National Guard, will co-chair the council, along with Kat Miller, who is director of the Nevada Dept. of Veterans Services. Shelley Hartmann, head of the Mineral County Economic Development Authority, supports the council, as the Hawthorne depot is the prime driver of Mineral County's economy.
