Due to the Department of Defense Drawdown on October 1st the US Army will be down from 570,000 personnel to 490,000. This loss of 80,000 people is only the beginning. A follow-on cut will see Army forces further reduced to 450,000 by October 2017. By 2019, that number could drop to an unprecedented 420,000, the smallest standing Army in modern times.

Threat levels are rising around the world. Russia. China. Iran. Syria. Afghanistan. North Korea. The Islamic State.

These Army reductions are not strategic. These are forced cuts brought about by Department of Defense budgetary constrictions. Now we face another defense budget cut of some $500 Billion from Sequestration and the consequences of more budget cuts of this magnitude - at this very moment in history - could be catastrophic.

Fort Benning is one of the largest. most technologically-advanced military installations in the world.

We must keep it strong.

Please do you part to help defend our Fort.

    Ft Benning is the lifeline of the nation, not just our community. The base is already set up to utilize to the maximum for training and managing and testing our military. We, Ft Benning and the Metropolitan area, have always been a community and a brotherhood. Your lives as well as our lives depend on the strength of Fort Benning!

    Who would we have protecting the USA. The great land of the free. If all these outside people coming coming into our don't like our culture, then they can pull up their pants and leave. We are offended because we have to look at their butts and we do not want to worship their GOD. We want to worship the Almighty God, the one and only.
