BRAC: Maryland's Growing Pains

BRAC: Maryland's Growing Pains

Our series on military base realignment continues with a look at Maryland's jobs boom and the different reactions from two communities affected by the military growth.

Our series on military base realignment and closure (BRAC) in the Washington region continues with a look at one of so-called 'winners' of the process: Maryland. We explore how expansion at Bethesda's National Naval Medical Center and Fort Meade will boost the state's economy, even though it may create headaches for local residents.
