Why Isn’t the Army Looking at Existing Facilities to Host New Command, Lawmakers Ask

The Army last month named 15 large metropolitan areas, rather than any of its installations, as candidates to host the headquarters for its new Futures Command because officials want the command to leverage the talent from academic institutions and the private sector. But the House Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee believes officials should consider placing the headquarters at an existing post, according to the report accompanying the fiscal 2019 milcon spending bill the full committee approved last week. In turn, lawmakers direct the Army to submit a report within 30 days after the measure becomes law describing how the 15 locations were selected and identifying current Army sites where Futures Command could be established.
