Pezold Management needs your help to show support for Ft. Benning

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Army is downsizing and Fort Benning is at risk of losing a total of 10,767 jobs.

 

The Columbus Chamber of Commerce is asking for your help in letting the Army know just how much job losses at Fort Benning could affect the Chattahoochee Valley.

The Chamber of Commerce says an Army draw down could the region to lose almost 14,000 jobs in the defense and contractor sectors.

 

Pezold management has collected nearly 9,000 letters in support for Fort Benning, answering the Army's request for comment from the community on the draw down. Their goal is 10,000 letters.

 

The deadline was originally on Friday, Aug. 22 but now as long as letters are postmarked by Monday, they will still be counted.

 

 

To participate, just stop in any Pezold Management McDonald's in Columbus or Phenix City and sign the pre-printed letters showing your support of Fort Benning, and asking the Army not to make these jobs cuts.

 

You can also stop in any Valley Hospitality hotel including the Marriott, DoubleTree, Fairfield Inn, Econo Lodge Victory Drive, Hampton Inn Fort Benning and Hampton Inn North or either Houlihan's restaurants and the Cannon Brew Pub to sign a letter.

 

If you have written a letter or would like to, you can bring it in to any of these locations and Pezold Management will mail it for you and take care of the postage.

If you'd like to let the Army know what you think about the potential draw down you can email your comments to Fort Benning at www.ldl.net, email fortbenning@ldl.net, or text your support to (706) 478-7727.
