Notice of availability. AGENCY: ACTION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Nov 13, 2014 Jkt 235001 The Department of the Army announces the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FNSI) for implementation of force structure realignment to reduce the Army active duty end-strength from 562,000 at the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 to 420,000 by FY 2020. The Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Structure Realignment (SPEA) supplements the 2013 Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA). After reviewing the SPEA and comments received during the public review period, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army, G–3/5/7 has signed the FNSI that concluded there will be no significant environmental impacts, other than socioeconomic impacts, likely to result from the implementation of the Proposed Action under the alternative analyzed. Although there could be significant socioeconomic impacts, these alone do not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement; therefore, one will not be prepared. Force restructure decisions reducing the Army active duty end-strength from 562,000 to 490,000 were supported by the 2013 PEA. The SPEA builds on the foundation of the 2013 PEA and assesses the impacts of a potential reduction of an additional 70,000 Soldiers and associated Army civilian employees (Army employees), from the end-strength of 490,000 Soldiers analyzed in the 2013 PEA to an active component end-strength of 420,000. The information in the SPEA will be used to support a series of decisions in the coming years regarding how the force is to be further realigned. An electronic version of the FNSI and SPEA is available for download at: http://aec.army.mil/Services/Support/ NEPA/Documents.aspx.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Both the 2013 PEA and 2014 SPEA analyzed potential reductions at Fort Benning, GA; Fort Bliss, TX; Fort Bragg, NC; Fort Campbell, KY; Fort Carson, CO; Fort Drum, NY; Fort Gordon, GA; Fort Hood, TX; Fort Irwin, CA; Fort Knox, KY; Fort Lee, VA; Fort Leonard Wood, MO; Fort Polk, LA; Fort Riley, KS; Fort Sill, OK; Fort Stewart, GA; Fort Wainwright, AK; Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, AK; Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA; and, United SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68225 States Army Garrison (USAG) Hawaii— Schofield Barracks, HI. The SPEA also analyzed potential reductions at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; Fort Belvoir, VA; Fort Huachuca, AZ; Fort Jackson, SC; Fort Leavenworth, KS; Fort Meade, MD; Fort Rucker, AL; Joint Base San Antonio—Fort Sam Houston, TX; and USAG Hawaii—Fort Shafter, HI. The SPEA provides an assessment of the possible direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental and socioeconomic impacts of the greatest Army employee reductions being considered at each installation. The SPEA does not identify any significant environmental impacts as a result of implementing the proposed action, with the exception of socioeconomic impacts at most installations; consequently, the preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. Socioeconomic impacts are of particular concern to the Army because they affect communities around military installations. Therefore, the SPEA has a comprehensive analysis of the socioeconomic impacts to inform decision-makers and communities. Brenda S. Bowen, Army Federal Register Liaison Officer.

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DoD.

ACTION: Notice to alter a System of Records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy proposes to alter the system of 
records, N06150-5, entitled ``Millennium Cohort Study'' in its 
inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as 
amended. This system will create a probability-based database of 
service members and veterans who have, or have not, deployed overseas 
so that various longitudinal health and research studies may be 
conducted over a 67-year period. The database will be used:
    a. To systematically collect population-based demographic and 
health data to evaluate the health of Armed Forces personnel throughout 
their careers and after leaving the service.
    b. To evaluate the impact of operational deployments on various

[[Page 68226]]

measures of health over time including medically unexplained symptoms 
and chronic diseases to include cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
    c. To serve as a foundation upon which other routinely captured 
medical and deployment data may be added to answer future questions 
regarding the health risks of operational deployment, occupations, and 
general service in the Armed Forces.
    d. To examine characteristics of service in the Armed Forces 
associated with common clinician-diagnosed diseases and with scores on 
several standardized self-reported health inventories for physical and 
psychological functional status.
    e. To provide a data repository and available representative Armed 
Forces cohort that future investigators and policy makers might use to 
study important aspects of service in the Armed Forces including 
disease outcomes among an Armed Forces cohort. In addition to revealing 
changes in veterans' health status over time, the Millennium Cohort 
Study will serve as a data repository, providing a solid foundation 
upon which additional epidemiological studies may be constructed.
    f. To access the associations of military service on the health and 
well-being of military families, and to compare the adjusted 
probabilities of new onset diseases and conditions among military 
spouses.''
