Just a matter of time. If army end strength is reduced further, and sequestration continues to reduce budgets, Recruiting Command, Cadet Command and HRC will be forced to take cuts.

Not to mention that every service on post is there because of our soldiers. As troop numbers diminish with 3/1 and others leaving, expect to see closure of the post schools, reduced medical and dental care and MWR.

Don't expect to see the WTU very long. Hard to justify the expenditures as the number of Wounded Warriors decline. Most can be taken care of at larger regional medical centers at larger installations.

Just a matter of time. Where are our Senators now? Campaigning. Both posts in the state going to downsize and eventually Know will get axed. No training, no troops, no gold. No longer viable to the Army. They will put HRC and their paperwork on the train and ship them back where they came from or someplace else. Mistake moving the historical Armor Center and training. It ceased being Fort Knox the day they cased their colors. It would devastate our area as well as the state. Thanks a lot Congress.

There is ALWAYS a draw down after a major conflict/war. This is no surprise.

BRAC lied? BRAC isn't a person. It's Base Realignment And Closure. But yes, thousands of people are getting screwed. And it's not a matter of destroying anything. We bulked up for OIF/OEF, like we always do during conflict, and now is draw down time, like always.

Radcliff continues to miss the boat. Sucking up to Ft. Knox and the military constantly instead of developing industry to sustain a community. We need to make and execute a sound plan and tell the Army to kiss off, take their post and go somewhere else.

WTU leaving would not be a surprise. Wounded and broken soldiers are always the first to be cut after a conflict. I speak as a veteran now, one who was lucky and not wounded nor injured. Government always shits on the broken in body, mind and spirit. Look at Agent Orange or PTSD...ignore and lie about the issue until most who could benefit from help are dead.

Of course what can we expect from a socialist / street hood such as obuma?
