The addition of nearly 4,000 cyber and intelligence jobs at Fort Gordon over the next five years should help insulate the post as the Army shrinks to its smallest size since before the buildup for World War II, one community leader said Monday.

The latest Defense Department budget proposal for fiscal year 2015, released Monday, calls for the Army to reduce its troop levels from 528,000 soldiers to fewer than 450,000 by 2019. The reduced levels would bring the Army to its lowest enrollment since 1940.
