To say it has been an exciting start to 2020 would be an understatement. News of the Army’s selection of Fort Knox as the location of Fifth Corps (V Corps) headquarters is tremendous and will make an already great installation even better. KRDA is grateful for the opportunity to help make the case to locate Fifth Corps here, but the workforce at Fort Knox deserves the greatest praise for their commitment to making it a premier military installation – one that KRDA is proud to promote.
We must thank Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the entire Kentucky Congressional Delegation for their tireless work as well. We are so proud to partner with them.
People have asked us what to do to next and our message is simple – keep doing what you have always done to take care of Soldiers and their families. There is no doubt this community’s devotion to our military also helps set us apart.
We will provide information and updates as we receive them and work with all of our great community partners to ensure our region is ready to support this influx of Army families. We’ll also continue to pursue additional opportunities.
Don’t hesitate to contact the KRDA team with questions or recommendations.
Thank you for all that you do as a community to make and keep Fort Knox strong.
