Brig. Gen. (Ret) Jim Iacocca recently represented KRDA at the 2019 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) national convention in Washington, D.C. At the event, Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville announced that the Army’s new battalion commander assessment program will take place at Fort Knox. Because of this, officers considered for battalion command in the Army as well as the general officers who assess them will now have the opportunity to see first-hand what a great installation and wonderful community we have.
Brig. Gen. (Ret) Iacocca also met with upwards of 23 general officers and senior officials from the Department of the Army and Department of Defense as well as several defense contractors. Following the convention, Brig. Gen. (Ret) Iacocca visited Capitol Hill where he met with Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Brett Guthrie and Sen. Mitch McConnell’s staff. They discussed potential opportunities for growth in our region and a new IT workforce development initiative that is being developed with our partners at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.
