Georgia Congressional Delegation Pushes for State to House Army Futures Command

Georgia’s congressional delegation, led by Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), has sent a letter urging the U.S. Army to station the service’s Futures Command in the state.

The letter, addressed to Secretary of the Army Mark Esper, emphasized that Georgia’s city of Atlanta may serve as a technological resource for the Futures Command, Sen. Isakson’s office said Wednesday.

The delegation attributes this notion to Atlanta being the largest technological private sector hub in Southeast U.S.

The Army announced last year a wave of modernization efforts aiming to address needs imposed by modern warfare, and among these is the Futures Command.

The Army Futures Command will consist of cross-functional teams of experts in acquisition, contracting and sustainment who will contribute support to the service’s weapon modernization activities.
