FAIRBANKS — Alaska’s two major Army posts could each lose more than 4,000 personnel each as the Army restructures for upcoming budget cuts, but reductions are not inevitable at Alaska’s bases. The bases that will lose soldiers haven’t been chosen and some bases might gain 1,000 people or more.

An environmental assessment released this month lists different options for shrinking the Army from 562,000 to 490,000 soldiers by 2020 as part of the Army’s role in reducing the nation’s budget deficit. One option would drop the number of the Army’s brigade combat teams (each about 4,000 soldiers) from 45 to no more than 37. A second option is to cut a larger number of brigade combat teams and increase the size of some of the remaining brigade combat teams.
