Army to Open Corps Headquarters in Kentucky

The U.S. Army has announced a new corps headquarters that will be based in Fort Knox, Ky. Around 200 of the 635 soldiers stationed at the Fifth Corps, or V Corps, headquarters will assist a Europe-based operational command post, the Army said Tuesday.

V Corps will support the U.S. European Command, Army forces stationed in Europe and allied organizations and nations as well as aid in the organization of coordinated tactical movements in the region.

“Combatant commanders know they can count on highly-trained and ready Army forces as they implement the National Defense Strategy around the world,” said Gen. James McConville, chief of staff of the Army.

V Corps will be the fourth corps headquarters of the Army. It is scheduled to begin operations by fall of this year.
