HAMPTON, Va. — Two Virginia military bases will merge next month, but officials say little will change in the short term.
Military officials say the process of combining operations is expected to last through October.
Col. Kevin Altman, commander of the 1st Mission Support Group at Langley, says the merger is not designed to reduce the number of military personnel or civilian workers at the bases. Instead, he says it’s a way to become more efficient and save money in the long term.
About 16,000 soldiers and airmen are currently stationed at the bases.
