Fort Gordon would get 250 jobs in Army reorganization | The Augusta Chronicle

Fort Gordon not only dodged a bullet Tuesday when the Army announced long-awaited cuts to its troop levels but it also appears the Augusta post would pick up about 250 new jobs.

“Fort Gordon is actually going to increase by 250 spaces by 2019,” said Lt. Col. Peggy Kageleiry, of Army Public Affairs.

Kageleiry could not specify what new jobs might come to Fort Gordon, but said the purpose of Tuesday’s reorganization, which amounted to the elimination of 12 combat brigades and 80,000 soldiers across the U.S., was to make the Army more “lethal, agile, adaptable and responsive.” Fort Stewart, near Savannah, would lose 1,400 troops.

As a result, she said, the Army determined that troop levels at Fort Gordon needed to be increased to provide soldiers the signal training they needed to offset the 21st century’s “emerging cyber threat.”
