Fort Riley Future Plans To Be Discussed

KSAL StaffApril 11, 2014

Leaders at Fort Riley are preparing to outline what residents can expect at the northeast Kansas Army post as the military looks to downsize.

Lt. Gen. Paul Funk, commanding general of Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division, will outline a plan Friday that looks through the year 2020.

Nearly 18,000 soldiers are currently assigned to the post, although the Army has announced plans to eliminate one of the 1st Infantry Division’s brigades. Because of reassignment and attrition, actual losses on post are expected to be fewer than 2,000 soldiers.

But officials say Fort Riley will seem crowded because nearly all remaining soldiers will be home from war deployments for the first time in a decade.
