Andersen AFB is probably THE most strategic military base in the entire Pacific theater. It is a forward operating base for airlift, cargo, bomber, and fighter aircraft for all of the pacific area of operation and into the middle-east. It would be wildly unrealistic that it would ever be considered for closure under BRAC. See more
Real-life photos of the operation are shown during the end credits. See more
