Closure list targets 33 major U.S. bases

The Pentagon on Friday recommended closing 33 major military installations in the United States in a realignment that apparently also would cut 29,000 military and civilian jobs.
The 28-page list of recommended changes appeared to show a net loss of 10,782 military positions and 18,223 civilian positions, with 2,818 added contractor posts created.
Military officials said the document also called for closing or realigning 775 smaller military locations.
