Ft. Benning loses bid for Army corps headquarters

FORT BENNING, Ga. (WTVM) - The Army announced the location of an additional corps headquarters this week.

The Fifth Corps location will be at Fort Knox, Kentucky, not Fort Benning, where Georgia officials wanted.

The headquarters will consist of approximately 635 soldiers, of which around 200 will support an operational command post in Europe on a rotational basis.

The corps headquarters is projected to be operational by fall 2020.
