Ft. Bragg To Get 88 Million For New Facility

A North Carolina congressman says Fort Bragg will receive $88 million to build a new facility to help wounded soldiers transition back to active duty or civilian life.

Rep. Larry Kissell said Friday the money is part of federal legislation that President Obama is expected to sign later this month.

The funding would help build the Warrior in Transition Complex.

The facility will include new barracks, administration offices, dining space and an assistance center for soldiers' families.

Kissell is from Biscoe and represents the 8th District, which includes parts of Fort Bragg.

The Democrat had promised to follow up on concerns about the
treatment of wounded soldiers after meeting with several of them in
March.
