Abstract : In response to everchanging global security requirements, the U.S. National Command Authority is reorganizing its force structure throughout the world. National defense planners are proposing to reduce, over the next several years, the overall military forces of the United States. As the number of Active Component soldiers and airmen decreases, the importance of Reserve Component soldiers and airmen to the overall defense of the nation increases. To meet the needs of the restructured Army, staff at the Camp Grayling Army National Guard Training Site proposed implementing three Master Plan projects. Included in this proposed action are the construction of two logistic support facilities, and a state-of-the-art armor training facility, the Multi-Purpose Range Complex-Heavy-Reduced (MPRC-H-R). An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared to assess the impacts of these construction projects. This Final EIS was filed with the Environmental Protection Agency in June 1994. The Record of Decision issued in August 1994 selected to implement all three installation Master Plan projects as proposed. (AN)
