Kelly Cunningham, senior fellow and economist with the National University System Institute for Policy Research, said the military will continue to play a major role in the local economy.
“The military is still a very vital big part of our economy. It makes well over 20 to 25 percent of our economy directly and we think it helped our economy stay stronger that it would have been through the recession,” Cunningham explained.
