The military plays a major role in the lives of many Midlands residents and contributes significantly to our economy, with Fort Jackson and Shaw Air Force base providing jobs to the area. There have been recent discussions on cutting back the fort’s personnel by as much as half, a move local government and business leaders say would have a large, negative impact. Fort Jackson’s commanding officer, General Bradley A. Becker, recently visited a meeting of the Camden Rotary Club to explain the base’s purpose in United States security and the economic benefit it provides to the region.
