Huelskamp To Attend Fort Riley Event

Fort Riley

Republican Congressman Tim Huelskamp and Brig. Gen. Roger L. Cloutier Jr. will speak with reporters ahead of a meeting on Fort Riley’s future.

The public meeting Monday was called to allow Army officials to hear from the community about how possible troop reductions at Fort Riley would 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 personnel reductions to the Army.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback also plans to attend.

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