Amen. It is long past time for the military to relocate. When they moved to San Diego it was much different than today. It is no longer a sleepy border town where the influx of defense workers had to live in tents in Balboa Park. The city has grown so remarkably that the land give-away is no longer reasonable.
The change in international relationships, or lack of, make moving the military to the desert more sense. Our recent fighting has been in such areas and training/living under these conditions would better prepare the men.
