Ryun Celebrates Return of Big Red One

Wednesday was a great day for Kansas as the Pentagon gave its final stamp of approval that Fort Riley would once again be the home of the Big Red 1. (Click Here for the Journal World Story) Congressman Ryun and Senator Roberts worked hard on the House and Senate Armed Services Committees to make this goal a reality by constantly promoting the value of the post. They along with Senator Brownback and Congressman Tiahrt on the Appropriations Committees directed significant investment in infrastructure to Fort Riley so it would be ready when it was time for troop realignment. Some reports indicate nearly twice as many troops will be at the post when all is said and done.
