Fort Campbell Troop Reduction Decision Delayed


A decision on possible troop reductions at Fort Campbell has been pushed to the end of this month.

Katie Lopez at the Christian County Chamber of Commerce confirms that the chamber expected the decision to come down this week, but received word from the Army that it would be postponed until at least the middle of July.

One possibility mulled by the Department of Defense calls for 16,000 personnel cuts - about half of Fort Campbell’s current payroll. The expected cuts are a result of military budget constraints.
