Fort Stewart facing deep budget cuts |


Like Fort Stewart, some of the Army's biggest posts - where soldiers have completed four and five combat tours since the wars began - are facing significant spending reductions, according to AP's figures. Fort Stewart currently has 13,541 soldiers deployed.

Figures showed potential cuts of 40 percent at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, home of the 101st Airborne Division; 25 percent at Fort Bragg, N.C.; 22 percent at Fort Drum, N.Y., and 21 percent at Bamberg, Germany...."

Ft. Bragg is home to the 82nd Airborne Division and a host of Special Forces and Ranger battalions; Ft. Drum, 10th Mountain Division; Bamberg, 173rd Airborne BCT and other units.
