Groton Base Threatened With Closure

One of an incredible series of large stories hitting the State today...what is going on in the heavenlies?

The biggest story is that the submarine base is slated to be closed. The Base Realignment and Closure Commission has spoken, and under its plans, Connecticut would take the biggest hit in the country: we will lose 7,096 military jobs and 952 civilian jobs. This does not even take into account the domino effect to businesses all over the southeastern part of the State. Connectciut officials are vowing to fight the recommendation.

The full BRAC report can be seen here (PDF document).

Continue to pray for God's mercies on our State and its economy.
