Today we’re discussing possible troop drawdowns in Alaska, part of the military’s broader reduction in overall size. Later this month, officials from the Defense Department and U.S. Army are visiting Anchorage and Fairbanks for listening sessions, to get a sense of what Forts Richardson and Wainwright mean to nearby communities. As well as how they fit into the broader mission of the American Armed Forces.
