Ceremony Signals Start of Fort Knox Construction Project

Fort Knox

FORT KNOX, Ky. — Fort Knox is planning a wall-breaking ceremony at the future headquarters building of the 1st Sustainment Command (Theater).

The ceremony represents the start of a construction project to renovate the building before the unit arrives at the central Kentucky Army post in July 2017.

Fort Knox officials say the project, costing an estimated $20 million, will renovate and equip a 1940s-era building.

The unit currently is stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The unit consists of about 520 active-duty soldiers and 60 Department of Defense civilian workers.

The unit's mission is to ensure that soldiers have the supplies and transportation capabilities they need to accomplish their missions. The unit supplies food, fuel, water, transportation, ammunition, building materials and repair parts.

The ceremony at Fort Knox is set for Monday morning.
