Saving Scott Air Force Base
SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (KMOX) – Supporters of Scott Air Force base say they were not surprised by the cuts announced this week by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.
Executive Director of the Leadership Council of Southwestern Illinois Ellen Krohne says while no one knows for sure how the cuts will impact the base specifically, there are some speculations.
Krohne says they can focus on not losing ground but she says there are departments of the military that will continue to grow like cyber missions which exist at Scott.
She says their mission will be to determine who they can help to continue to grow and grow at Scott.
