Fort Campbell Deployments Uncertain Following Obama Announcement

Fort Campbell, KY – Fort Campbell officials aren't sure if President Obama's troop surge announcement will affect their base. The base had previously planned to send around 11,000 troops in the spring. President Obama is calling for a surge of around 30-thousand more troops. Army spokesperson Cathy Gramling says brigades are prepared if more soldiers are called up. Close to 29,000 soldiers deploy out of Fort Campbell.
