Bundeswehr To Close 31 Major Bases

(ALBRECHT M√úLLER) BONN – The German Bundeswehr will close 31 major bases and reduce the number of personnel to less than 15 at 33 other sites. Since facilities with fewer than 15 personnel no longer are officially considered to be military bases, the number of bases will fall from 328 to 264. Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière presented this new deployment concept at a Berlin press conference Oct. 26.
