FORT KNOX, KY. — A leadership course for Army cadets will be moved to Fort Knox, bringing thousands of college students to the post for the summer.

The relocation of the Leader Development and Assessment Course is good news for Fort Knox, which is losing a combat brigade as part of the Pentagon’s force reduction.

A statement from the Army’s Cadet Command Wednesday says the move will consolidate summer training for its Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. Along with another ROTC course at Fort Knox, the summer courses will bring about 12,000 cadets and staff to the post beginning in 2014.

U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky had written letters to Army leaders, urging them to relocate the training course to Fort Knox.

The course was previously hosted by Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state.
