I understand your concerns over loosing recreational area with the expansion of Ft. Irwin. They are valid and need to be addressed. I think though that the expansion of Ft. Irwin is much needed. As it is right now, the military can not do, effectivly, some large scale manuvers. These would be battalion and divisional size. They just about have to run their exercises in a circle. With the expansion, exercises would be able to flow in a more natural manner.
In reguards to the loss of recreational land in this expansion, I think it needs to be repalced in another area, even to the point of opening now closed land. Yes I know that the two senators from CA would have a fit over this, but both have to happen and should.
