Mo. senators ask Army to reconsider FLW reductions

Monday, 29 April 2013 17:56 Published in Local News
WASHINGTON (AP) - Missouri's two U.S. senators want the Pentagon to reconsider a proposed troop realignment that could reduce the number of soldiers stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in south-central Missouri by nearly 4,000.
 
   Republican Sen. Roy Blunt and Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, wrote a joint letter Monday to U.S. Army Secretary John McHugh saying they're concerned about possible plans to reconfigure brigade combat teams at the Pulaski County installation. A preliminary report by the Army's Environmental Command includes a possible force reduction of 3,900 of the more than 27,000 troops at Fort Leonard Wood in fiscal year 2011. Blunt and McCaskill are on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
 
   The Army is holding a public meeting on the proposal Tuesday evening at Fort Leonard Wood.
