Fort Knox commander says country won't be left with 'hollow Army'

By Marty Finley

Maj. Gen. Jefforey Smith said the decision to shrink the U.S. Army by 80,000 soldiers is one steeped in careful strategy but will force inactivation of at least eight brigade combat teams.

Smith, commander of Cadet Command and Fort Knox, led a community listening session Friday to encourage leaders outside the gates that the post is positively leveraged to benefit from the drawdown of forces from 570,000 in 2010 to 490,000 by the end of 2017, a directive issued as overseas wars in Afghanistan and Iraq come to an end.
