The U.S. Army has announced that Atlanta will advance to the next round of consideration for the home of the new Army Futures Command headquarters. Im glad to see that the Army recognizes Atlantas unique advantages," said Senator Johnny Isakson, R-GA. Theres no doubt in my mind that Atlanta is the best place for the Army Futures Command, said Perdue, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

15 finalists, strategically spread around the country, for political reasons I am sure.

If Sam Nunn were still in office, you can be sure Atlanta would win.

Why Isakson is not powerful enough? He is the chair of VA, which should have some power over the military.

The key is not to narrow the field too much until you get your funding.

U.S. Senator from Georgia David Perdue sits on the Senate Armed Forces Committee. So maybe that would mean something.

Honestly though I think Georgia has faired well in recent times on the military front.

We lost Gillem and McPherson, which is very unfortunate...but the pain for Georgia overall could've been a whole lot worse.

It's not just the Senators that have to work to recruit these bases...but it is also the U.S. House as well as local politicians who have to get in the dirt as well.

And let's be honest:

The House congressional reps and local politicians representing Metro Atlanta...is pretty lackluster to say the least, on military issues.

Which makes a up huge reason of why we lost Gillem and McPherson. And on top of that, retired military veterans living in Atlanta proper...didn't even get the Commissary built...as promised.

Hank Johnson, John Lewis, as well as the Atlanta mayors, city councilors, county chairs, county commissioners state senators, and state house reps...who represent areas of the former Fort Gillem & Fort McPherson sites, are quite simply...as dumb as a box of doorknobs, when it comes to military and veteran affairs issues.

They don't have a single clue...and are truly not trying to get a clue either.

I could say more. A whoooole lot more. But I don't want this comment to get any mod strikes.

It is what it is...

I wish we could figure out a way for you to expand on these comments. This is a really big issue for the ATL.

Is there another forum where you could go into it?
