The commander of Buckley Air Force Base says the base has brought a billion-dollar boon to Aurora.

Colonel David Ziegler said new construction, 13-thousand jobs and other benefits are helping the city.

Of course it's not the first time Aurora benefited from the military.

Both Fitzsimons Army Hospital and Lowry Air Force Base provided jobs for years.

Buckley, though is a key center of the nation's intelligence establishment while Lowry was largely for training.
