Boustany Reaffirms Support to Fort Polk in Letter


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D., (R-South Louisiana) issued the following statement after signing on to a letter reaffirming his support and commitment to the Army and Fort Polk:

"I am proud to reaffirm my support and commitment to both the Army and Fort Polk. By involving as many citizens as possible, hopefully, the Pentagon will see how large a role Fort Polk plays not only in the community but in our entire state. As the state of Louisiana's largest employer, Fort Polk's economic impact surpasses $1.5 billion each year. Rather than making indiscriminate cuts, I feel our military would be best served by looking at reductions of specific programs. Across-the-board cuts, like the ones potentially affecting Fort Polk, are harmful to the Army and to our state."
