U.S. Closing 15 Bases in Europe

BBC News reports that “the US will close 15 military bases across Europe, US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel has confirmed.”  

“The Pentagon says the move will save around $500m (£300m) a year, and comes as the US military seeks to shift its attention towards Asia.”  

“But the US has named RAF Lakenheath to be the first permanent European base for the F-35 aircraft.”
