But Nothing about a new Base Exchange and Commissary at Moffett..

At Moffett Field The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to make a Base Exchange/Commissary combination their FIRST priority. The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to ask why is DeCA not getting assistance in securing land on/at Moffett Field. The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to ask NASA, Army, Navy and Air Force – WHY?

Tear up a historical site i.e., HANGER ONE but give the Army 270,000-square-foot facility on 39 acres..

It would be nice if The Bay Area Congressional Delegation *CARED*
