Army dedicates headquarters building at Bragg


FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) -- The Army has dedicated a new building to serve as the combined headquarters of Forces Command and US Army Reserve Command at Fort Bragg.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that the headquarters building already is being used but was dedicated Monday in memory of Gen. George C. Marshall, the Army chief of staff during World War II.

It's one of the biggest projects to come from the base realignment and closure law.

That law directed that the two commands relocate from Fort McPherson in Atlanta to Fort Bragg no later than Sept. 15. The commands bring more generals and high-paying military and civilian jobs.

The building will house about 2,400 soldiers and civilians.
