Fort Knox Visit

Members of the Base Re-Alignment and Closure Commission say Fort Knox could easily accept an incoming brigade combat team.

Two members of the team gathered information at Fort Knox yesterday.

Based on the Department of Defense recommendations, the nine member commission is traveling to all bases slated for closure or realignment.

The recommendations were released on May 13.

They called for Fort Knox to lose the armor center, but receive an infantry brigade combat team and the accessions cadet and human resources commands.
