Local leaders believe Army recognized value and
preserved core mission at Fort Leonard Wood
After months of collecting public comments and conducting multiple
listening sessions around the country, the U.S. Army announced today
that Fort Leonard Wood would see far fewer cuts than originally
estimated. Due to the Army's decision to reduce its budget, an estimated
774 positions will be lost at Fort Leonard Wood by September 30,
The announced number includes primarily uniformed Army positions.
It is expected that an additional announcement regarding Civilian
Army positions will come later in the year.
Over a year ago the U.S. Army announced a need to reduce the active
duty force from 490,000 down to 450,000 through the Supplemental
Programmatic Environmental Assessment (SPEA), which analyzed the
socioeconomic impact of those possible cuts at 30 Army installations,
including Fort Leonard Wood. The SPEA originally called for Fort
Leonard Wood to lose up to 5,400 Soldier and Army civilian positions.
An end strength of 450,000 would reduce the Army to it's smallest
size since the United States entered World War II in 1940. The Army
was at 480,000 when the World Trade Center was attacked in 2001.
"As we expected, the Army is being forced to make difficult
decisions due to budgetary constraints brought on by Sequestration
in Washington, D.C. While it is true that Fort Leonard Wood will
see reductions that will hurt the region and state, it is important
to note that many other installations fared considerably worse,
in some cases losing thousands of uniformed positions. We believe
that the announcement of a smaller number than originally estimated
demonstrates the Army's understanding of the importance of the enduring
value of the core training mission at Fort Leonard Wood," said
Dr. Brian Henry, Sustainable Ozarks Partnership president.
Regional SPEA Feedback
In August of 2014, almost 4,900 Fort Leonard Wood supporters submitted
written comments to the Army opposing cuts at the installation.
The SOP allowed citizens to send emails and letters directly from
their website to the U.S. Army Environmental Command. In addition,
the SOP set up a petition on an external website. Citizens digitally
signed the petition and left comments. All signatures and comments
from the petition were sent directly to the Army.
In March of 2015, a team of Soldiers from the U.S. Army's G-3/5/7
Force Management Division attended an Army Listening Session on
Fort Leonard Wood to hear directly from community members regarding
how critical the installation is to the region, state, and nation.
Over 2,000 Missourians packed Nutter Field House for the U.S. Army's
Listening Session held on Fort Leonard Wood. Missouri Governor Jay
Nixon, Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Roy Blunt, Congresswoman
Vicky Hartzler, State Senator Dan Brown (with about half of the
Missouri Senate), State Representative Steve Lynch (with about one
third of the other members of the Missouri General Assembly), local
elected officials from across the region, and hundreds of community
members attended to demonstrate to the Army why Fort Leonard Wood
is critical to mission success.
"We feel that we made a great case through the public comment
period and the listening session as to why Fort Leonard Wood is
a great place for the Army to do business. We believe that we showcased
the installation's strengths, such as modern, flexible training
areas and ranges that could accommodate expansion, zero encroachment
issues, newly built and updated training facilities and barracks,
and the abundance of natural resources that are necessary to accommodate
current and new missions. We are not happy that the Army has to
make cuts at all, but to lose far fewer jobs than originally estimated
makes this bitter pill a little easier to swallow," said Joe
Driskill, Sustainable Ozarks Partnership Executive Director..
Future of the Region
Each year, Fort Leonard Wood trains approximately 80,000 Soldiers
and this training mission is critical to the Army and nation. Even
with the announced reductions at Fort Leonard Wood, the number of
uniformed positions on the installation will still be higher than
it was in 2001. The Army's decision to minimize the reductions at
Fort Leonard Wood underscores the notion that the installation is
well positioned to remain one of the nation's premier training installations.
"It is important that we remain vigilant in our support for
the installation during these continued times of budget uncertainty
in Washington, D.C. As I discussed with my fellow Association of
Defense Communities board members at the recent National Summit,
if budgetary Sequestration is not corrected, the Army will be forced
to make even more substantial cuts. Any future cuts could negatively
affect our personnel and missions on Fort Leonard Wood. The SOP
will continue working with our partners across the state and nation
to ensure the viability of Fort Leonard Wood for years to come,"
The Sustainable Ozarks Partnership is building on the Fort Leonard
Wood region's strong past and preparing the region for a healthy,
resilient future. We are a nonprofit organization working to bring
all of the region's stakeholders to the table to drive regional
development and advocate for new or expanded military and federal
missions, all as part of our efforts to strengthen the Fort Leonard
