3. I went to the Ft. Hood website and found this about the reduction:

"Accordingly, Fort Hood may experience a net loss of approximately 2,900 active component military positions by the end of Fiscal Year 2017 -- a seven percent reduction in the number of Soldiers at Fort Hood. This includes the inactivation of the 4th BCT, 1st Cavalry Division, and several other non-BCT formations.


There's about a quarter million people in the Copperas-Cove, Temple, Killeen area. I think they'll adjust in a four year period. Shouldn't be a hard hit.

Frankly, anytime the military reduces anything I'm happy.
