Times change, however, and that may mean the next round of BRAC changes could result in APG becoming the next Fort Monmouth, which closed in New Jersey when many of its functions were consolidated at Aberdeen after the last BRAC round. It is good strategy for Harford County and the Army Alliance to tout APG as remaining a vibrant and vital installation. That, however, can't be the only strategy. Harford County and the surrounding areas need to start making plans for the possibility of a future that doesn't include the Army at Aberdeen. While APG may be around in some form for years to come, there's a distinct possibility that it would go away, and failing to plan for such an eventuality would be, to borrow a military turn of phrase, planning to fail.
