The military's Base Realignment and Closure plan will mean thousands of workers in the region will lose their jobs in the next two years.
Margaret Wright oversees D.C.'s department of employment services office at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. That's where civilian employees who will lose their jobs under BRAC can receive job training. Wright says demand for the job training was so great, the office had to open three weeks early. Wright says her office is working closely with colleagues in Maryland and Virginia.
Many of the duties performed at the military bases and offices in the district that will close will be moved to Bethesda Naval Center in Maryland and Fort Belvoir in northern Virginia.
