TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Fort Riley is holding a meeting to hear from the community about how possible personnel reductions on the base could affect them.

Fort Riley employs more than 25,000 people in the Junction City area. In a news release, Fort Riley said as many as 16,000 could be dismissed or redeployed.

The base is one of 30 military installations across the U.S. that could see troop reductions as a result of the federal budget cuts and personnel reductions to the Army.

The forum will be held Feb. 9 at the Geary County Convention Center in Junction City.
