Base Realignment Delayed

The commander of troops at Fort Knox has provided new details about the government’s base realignment and closure plans.

Maj. Gen. Robert Williams said the war in Iraq is delaying the arrival of 3,500 members of the infantry brigade combat team to the base. Williams also said the team will stay at Fort Hood, Texas, then deploy overseas.

The full unit is expected to arrive in September 2009.
