Lenny, Please post this on your website for me......thank you! Stella Greetings to One and All1 So often we receive CPEO's information and more times than not, it's the negative side of the BRAC/FUDS sites. I have been involved with the Camp Bonneville Base Closure in Vancouver, WA for over two years now. It has been quite a learning experience but for the vast majority of the time it has been positive. In recent weeks, I have been pleasantly surprised. The Army and it's Commanders of this base are proving out to be accountable and responsible. We have had several articles in our newspaper addressing the safety issues and the Army's commitment to cleanup this base. I have worked with local, state and federal elected officials through their local Representatives and have found this to be extremely beneficial. A recent meeting with one of our county Commissioners and few other key players in local government along with two regulators proved extremely productive. I can not tell any of you what a pleasure it has been in recent weeks. I also found it imperative to tell a 'positive' story since we all know what a nightmare these sites have become. I would strongly encourage everyone on a BRAC or FUD site committee to communicate, face to face, with your local, state and federal elected officials on a regular basis and to communicate with the military commanders in charge of your particular base closure. Though these bases may not get cleaned up as fast as we'd like, the fight is well worth it. My experience with Camp Bonneville is testament to this. You all have a great day!
