Army Ready To Expand By Thousands

Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. Army officials are preparing to go public with a broad plan mapping out where six new brigade combat teams and eight support units will be based.

Army bases in Texas, Georgia, and Colorado will each gain two additional combat brigades in the coming years as the Army moves to grow by 74,000 soldiers by 2010.

Fort Bliss in Texas, Fort Carson in Colorado and Fort Stewart in Georgia will each get roughly 7,000 more soldiers and their families. But every Army installation across the country will see more soldiers, anywhere from a few soldiers to thousands.

Information about the plan began to trickle out as Army officials spread out across Capitol Hill, talking to the members of Congress who will see growth in their districts.
