FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky agency is urging people to attend a meeting this month at Fort Campbell where Army officials will take public comment on possible personnel cuts.

The community listening session is set for Jan. 20 at Fort Campbell’s Family Resource Center.

The Kentucky New Era (https://bit.ly/17DQ6wf) reports the Pennyrile Area Development District is asking community leaders and residents to attend the meeting in support of the sprawling post on the Kentucky-Tennessee line.

Officials in Clarksville, Tennessee, have also urged area residents to attend and show support for the post.

To meet smaller operating budgets, the Army is projecting a nationwide reduction in personnel strength from 490,000 to 450,000, and possibly as low as 420,000. The reductions would affect both military and civilian positions.
