Closing Overseas Bases

This is the letter sent by four congressmen to the Catfood Commission asking them to recommend closing overseas military bases.  How many of those there are is in debate because of the confusing ways they are delineated.  Many in the UK, for instance, are called RAF bases, but they are really USAF bases.  Most people put the number at near 1,000. The picture is of a stream in Vincenza, Italy, home of a giant US base and of Palladio’s famous Villa Rotonda.
