Retired colonel appointed as new Fort Knox base realignment and closures liaison

Fort Knox is one of the few military posts across the country that is adding jobs because of the military realignment.  And there's a new man overseeing all of it in Kentucky.

Tuesday Governor Beshear appointed retired Colonel Mark Needham as the base realignment and closures liaison.  He'll help implement the federal government's BRAC transformation.

When BRAC is implemented, it's expected to become the largest single economic advancement in Kentucky's history.

It's estimated 5,000 new military and civilian jobs will be created in the next four years.
