ROTC Leadership School Moving to Ft. Knox

A leadership course for Army cadets will be moving to Ft. Knox, bringing thousands of college students to the post next summer.

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

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

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