As a former reemployment center, Building 755 was instrumental in preparing defense contractors to land new jobs following the closure of the base as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process.

This act was responsible for closing more than 350 “excess” military bases as a cost-savings measure. Mare Island was identified for closure in the 1993 round, and it was fully decommissioned by 1996.

Thanks to Stephen for popping the blue-gel’d flash in the roof access room above.
