The writer's intent in making this study is to give the reader an understanding of the following areas: 1. The problems and adverse affects of an Air Force base closure upon the civilian community and civilian personnel involved. 2. The current programs, policies, techniques, and procedures, used by the Department of Defense and the Air Force, in helping communities affected by a base closure to adjust to the inherent economic problems. 3. The Federal government's and in particular the Air Force's social responsibility to the communities and civilian personnel affected by a closure action. The main contention brought out in this thesis is that the Air Force is not acting as socially responsible as it could toward communities affected by closure actions. However, greater social responsibility is possible through a better informed Air Force. Therefore, the offered solution points toward the Air Force Information Officer and his responsibility to promote the social responsibility concept.
