FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 11, 2020
Today, Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan announced his support for Fort Benning as the new home for the U.S. Army’s Fourth Corps Headquarters.
Fort Benning is one of three finalists to be considered by the U.S. Army in their upcoming decision regarding the location of their new Fourth Corps headquarters. The other two locations include Fort Knox in Kentucky and Fort Drum in New York.
Lt. Governor Duncan expressed his support for Fort Benning in a letter to Secretary Ryan McCarthy. In the letter, he focused on the existing assets of Fort Benning and Georgia that will prove to be not only an economic advantage but ultimately a strategic advantage to the Fourth Corps mission.
“Fort Benning is an economically viable option due to its existing capacity, which will keep the costs of developing and maintaining the headquarters at a minimum,” wrote Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan. “As one of the largest Army bases in the world, Fort Benning is committed to the U.S. Army and its strategic objectives.”
