Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) recently issued an executive order creating a council to preserve the state’s military missions and infrastructure in a looming base closure round. Sandoval said there are active, guard and reserve bases in Nevada and “we must use our every effort to protect and expand those assets.” The goal of the council is to craft recommendations that will help the state retain and build its existing military installations. The co-chairs of the panel will be the state’s veteran services director and adjutant general, according to the executive order. Nevada is home to Naval Air Station Fallon, Nellis Air Force Base, Creech AFB and Hawthorne Army Depot.
