Posted January 9, 2015 at 5:00am

BBC News reports that “the US will close 15 military bases across Europe, US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel has confirmed.”  

“The Pentagon says the move will save around $500m (£300m) a year, and comes as the US military seeks to shift its attention towards Asia.”  

“But the US has named RAF Lakenheath to be the first permanent European base for the F-35 aircraft.”
