Jackie Lowe, Chair of the Chamber Board of Directors for 2013 suggest three ideas the public could stress in making comments:

  1. The Department of Defense and the Department of the Army have made a significant investment in Fort Benning since BRAC 2005. Reducing personnel at Fort Benning would squander this investment.
  2. Our community has also made significant investments in transportation and education with more to come.

Public comments on the Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Restructuring may be submitted by email or mail to:

The comment period end on February 17, 2013.
