Army Rethinking Joint Base Program

The U.S. Army is reconsidering the controversial joint base program, designed to consolidate military bases from across the branches.

Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno claims the Army has encountered some problems with the program saying, “It’s time for us to do an assessment.”

“Some of us are saying: ‘Are we getting benefits out of it? Is it working? Are we having problems?’ Because in some places, we are having problems with joint basing,” Odierno said. “So we’re taking a hard look at this … then we’ll move forward on what we think the way ahead is.”

Lt. Gen. Bill Grisoli, director of the Army staff, has formed a group with his counterparts from the other services to review the issue, Odierno said.
