Lowe Chevrolet is excited to welcome the influx of troops who proudly serve our country to the Waynesville, Missouri area. Soldiers began to arrive at the nearby Fort Leonard Wood in late March and will continue to come to the location throughout the summer, following an expansion of Fort Leonard Wood’s Basic Combat Training Mission that U.S. Senator Roy Blunt announced earlier this year.
In total an additional 4,500 soldiers will be added to the fort’s basic combat training during the 2017 fiscal year. The addition of these troops here in Missouri is part of a larger operation of the Army to increase its soldier headcount to 1.018 million; this means an additional 28,000 soldiers overall this year—and more than 16% of them will be coming through Fort Leonard Wood.
“Fort Leonard Wood is the first stop for thousands of soldiers who answer the call to serve each year,” remarked Blunt. “The 10 incredibly challenging weeks they face in Basic Combat Training provide them with the knowledge, skills, and discipline to take on the threats we face. I’m proud that even more men and women will become soldiers in our state over the next year, and I’ll continue backing efforts to ensure our military branches have the end strength they need to fulfill their missions.”
Lowe Chevrolet is proud to provide new and used cars and excellent service and maintenance to Waynesville residents, including our soldiers at Ford Leonard Wood. Our vehicles are competitively priced, and we pride ourselves on being a transparent and easy-to-work with dealership that is honored to be a part of this community.
