MILITARY Fort Campbell

MILITARY Fort Campbell straddles both Montgomery County, TN and Christian County, KY. The base is a vital part of the region. The impact military personnel and their families have on the 10-county region is substantial—both during and after their transition out of the military, for those who choose to stay in the area. KEY HIGHLIGHTS • 400 military exits each month • 63,200 veterans living in 10-county region • 14% of total expenditures spent on behalf of veterans are for education, vocational rehabilitation, and employment programs Top Civilian Occupations: • Managers, truck drivers, technicians, and mechanics On average, approximately 400 personnel separate from service from Fort Campbell each month (Fort Campbell Strong Economic Growth Plan 2016). According to the same study, 2,442 personnel were scheduled to separate from service in 2016. This is a large labor pool the region has been struggling to capitalize on. The 10-county region is home to over 63,000 veterans in 2017, and Montgomery County retains nearly 36,000 of that total (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) while Christian County has nearly 9,300 veterans. Almost 60% of the military employment in Kentucky is located at Fort Campbell. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs projects the growth in veteran population to slow over the next decade, from approximately 3% annually to 1.5%.
