What Will Happen To Otis Angb?

Fri Dec 16, 2005 7:01 am

I read earlier today that Otis Air National Guard base has been taken off the base closure list. The F-15Cs will still be rebased at Barnes ANGB but Otis will soldier on. What new mission will the base be taking on?

Where did you read that?.. The BRAC decision is final, the F-15s are going to Barnes however they (Senator Kennedy) were trying to find an expanded role for the Coast Guard who will remain at Otis. There was concern about the departure of the MA ANG because they maintaned the air field, plowed the runways, performed maintenance etc.. It was un clear whether the Coast Guard could or would take over those duties considering the relatively small size of their enclave at Otis.
