Retired Col. John Seitz, military affairs director for the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce, speaks about Fort Riley's importance to the state of Kansas April 18 during a community listening session at 1st Infantry Division headquarters at Fort Riley, Kan. Installations across the Army are hosting listening sessions to get the public's input as it works to drawdown end strength, redistribute and reshape to enhance readiness, increase agility and flexibility and meet the requirements of the Nation's Defense Strategy in a fiscally constrained environment. More than 300 state leaders and local community members filled the room as Brig. Gen. Donald MacWillie, the assistant division commander for support, hosted an open forum to ensure people in the surrounding communities understand the process the Army will use to reach stationing decisions.
