CHATTAHOOCHEE VALLEY REGION BATTLES TO STABALIZE FORT BENNING
Posted July 10, 2015
When the Army announced its drawdown from 570,000 to 490,000 in 2013, the Columbus Chattahoochee Coalition, in concert with the Fort Benning Partnership and Columbus Chamber of Commerce, won the first battle to stabilize Fort Benning and the post actually grew by 76 personnel. Thus, the post was able to avoid any losses. Today, the first effects of the continued drawdown were felt as it was announced that the American Army would continue to reduce its standing Army from 490,000 personnel to 450,000. The loss of approximately 40,000 more from the current Army will be complete by the end of September 2017. Each state with Army posts received cuts; and after many struggles to defend Fort Benning, the Georgia military installation was not immune to defense budget reductions.
