Officials to discuss troop reduction impact to Fort Sill

Posted: Updated:

(Fort Sill, OK)_ Fort Sill's post commander will get input today from southwest Oklahoma leaders on the impact of possible troop reductions.

Under the new defense budget, the Army is required to reduce and reorganize its force.  Fort Sill officials are still analyzing all their options and no decisions have been made yet. However, the Army's active duty component will be cut by about 80,000 soldiers by the year 2017, so many posts will be impacted.

Major General Mark McDonald will take the information from today's session and forward it to the Department of the Army.

It will be held at 2:00 p.m., at Snow Hall on Fort Sill.
