Community infrastructure important to Army post

Posted: Updated:

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A Fort Campbell official is noting how important the infrastructure of surrounding communities is to the Army post.

Fort Campbell garrison commander Col. David "Buck" Dellinger says the post relies on those communities to provide dependable infrastructure to soldiers and their families, especially during a deployment. He said Army administrators count on cities like Clarksville, Tenn., Oak Grove, Ky., and Hopkinsville, Ky., to provide it.

The Kentucky New Era reports Dellinger says the post has an objective to make the assignment at Fort Campbell the best in each soldier's career so that they want to return for their last duty position.

He says the infrastructure of surrounding communities is an important factor in that goal.
