Officials have announced that a major ROTC cadet training program is being relocated to Fort Knox.

U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie each released statements Wednesday afternoon announcing that the Leadership Development and Assessment Course at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., is moving to the area.

Fort Knox is home to U.S. Army Cadet Command, which oversees LDAC.

McConnell’s office said the senator had received word that day from Army officials that LDAC would come to the base, bringing several hundred ROTC cadets.

Fort Knox officials have not confirmed the move or offered information about the number of positions coming to the area or the economic impact the change might have.

More details will be available in Thursday's print edition of The News-Enterprise.
