III. Military Bases

In terms of geographic locations, DoD manages a worldwide real property portfolio that spans all 50 states, seven U.S. territories, and 40 foreign countries.

The latest round of base realignment and closure (BRAC) began in 2006 and ended in 2011. In the process, 22 major domestic bases were closed, 33 were realigned, and 775 small installations were either closed or realigned. 70,000 troops who had been deployed in Europe or Asia were redeployed to other bases. By 2011, 34 U.S. bases and installations in ROK and 13 in Germany had been returned respectively to the host nation; and the I Corps Forward Headquarters had been relocated from CONUS to Camp Zama in Japan. In another line of development, however, the U.S. is making plans to build new military bases in areas of diminishing U.S. influence but of increasing importance to the U.S..

In FY 2006, the U.S. had altogether 3,731 military bases, including 2,888 in CONUS, 77 in U.S. territories, and 766 in foreign countries (among them, 293 in Germany, 111 in Japan, and 105 in ROK). Six years into the latest round of BRAC, by FY 2011, there were 2,825 military bases in CONUS, 87 in U.S. territories, and 611 in foreign countries (among them, 194 in Germany, 108 in Japan, and 82 in South Korea.)
