ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Army is planning to hold two public listening sessions in Alaska for people to weigh in on potential personnel cuts.

KTUU (https://is.gd/JLZLJ2) reports that listening sessions are set to be held in Anchorage Feb. 23 and in Fairbanks on Feb. 24.

Locations and times of the meetings have not yet been determined.

Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson spokesman Lt. Col. Alan Brown says the Army is considering cuts at 30 installations, including some overseas.

Brown says the worst-case scenario in Alaska would be cuts of up to 5,800 soldiers at Fort Wainwright and up to 5,300 soldiers at JBER.
