Supporters of Robins Air Force Base in Middle Georgia should prepare for another BRAC round, but as long as the facility remains productive, it likely would be spared during a new base closure exercise, according to former Georgia Rep. Jim Marshall (D). “Robins, if it’s properly prepared, will do quite well as you look at the different alternatives around the United States for saving money,” Marshall said Thursday, reported WMGT. Key to the base’s preparation is keeping up with the latest technology. “Robins is already the center of excellence for electronic warfare. No reason why it can’t be the center of excellence for a whole lot of other IT, technology-driven needs,” he said. Charles Stenner, president and CEO of 21st Century Partnership, echoed Marshall’s point. “Robins Air Force Base is postured and certainly capable of accepting all of those types of missions,” Stenner said.
