Speaker highlights developments at Ft. Campbell for Evansville Rotary

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Mission Support spokesman Jeffrey Yaeger stopped by the Evansville Rotary Club to talk about what's happening at Fort Campbell.      

He said even though fewer people are enlisting in the service, more are being deployed.

Yaeger said it's more important than ever to talk to the public about what the military does.

"We are more dependent on a military that is closed off from the American public,” said Yaeger.  “So I think any opportunity that we have to talk to any community or any other Americans about what the military does for them is a great opportunity.”

Despite a drop in enlistments, Fort Campbell is one of only three Army bases which is seeing an increase in personnel.
