   Military personnel cuts will take a big bite out of Fort Leonard Wood.  The largest base in Missouri is expected to lose one-thousand soldiers by October 2015 as part of budget cutting across the U.S. military.
   Fort Leonard Wood CO, Army Major General Leslie Smith outlined the cuts Wednesday at a town hall meeting on the base. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that about seven-thousand people in uniform work at the base, known mainly for training new recruits, military police and engineers.  The paper reports the cuts will come from Forces Command, a less visible group that deploys soldiers overseas.  
   Personnel cuts are also expected to affect Scott Air Force Base, but the extent of those cuts isn't yet known.
