As a nation that has been at war for nearly 18 years, one of the most important concerns for military leaders is sustained training and readiness. Therefore, it is no surprise that the preponderance of Department of Defense funding goes to combat readiness. An unintended result of these budget priorities has been the shortfall of available funding for maintenance of real property at bases at home and overseas. This reality has sparked military installation leaders to question the necessity of running such facilities as golf courses, horse stables, storage facilities, and lodging properties. Perhaps now is the ideal time to let private companies run these operations, allowing military funding to go to improving combat readiness.
