Abstract : This report reviews the status of and basis for an Army Cadet Command proposal to close the Second Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) regional headquarters at Fort Knox, Kentucky, while maintaining regional headquarters at Fort Lewis, Washington, and Fort Bragg, North Carolina. This proposal also included discontinuing the ROTC summer camp at Fort Knox and dividing it between Forts Lewis and Bragg. Because of questions relating to readiness, housing, and costs, the proposal to close the ROTC regional headquarters at Fort Knox has not been approved by the Army. As a result, the regional headquarters remains open at Fort Knox and the summer camp operated at Fort Knox is expected to remain in place through fiscal year 1996 and possibly 1997. Still unresolved are questions about the impact of the ROTC program on training and readiness of combat units stationed at certain bases that house and support ROTC summer camp programs; adequacy and condition of housing at bases being considered for consolidation of the ROTC program, both on a short and longer term basis; and costs to address the housing problem.
