This week the Base Realignment and Closure Commission is set to vote on recent recommendations by the Pentagon to realign and close some bases.
The 186th Air Refueling Wing in Meridian, Miss., is one of the bases for which realignment has been proposed. As part of it, the unit would lose nine tankers and about 175 full-time jobs.
The commission's vote is expected to be disclosed to the public on September 8.
