ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear didn't let a retired colonel from Fort Knox enjoy his retirement long.
The governor tabbed Col. Mark Needham as his liaison for Base Realignment and Closure activities. Needham knows his way around Fort Knox and BRAC operations. Before he retired, Needham ran day-to-day operations for the post, about 40 miles south of Louisville, as garrison commander and managed BRAC activities there. He retired in July.
Beshear says Needham has proven to be invaluable and has given invaluable advice.
Needham said when he was announced as the liaison that the changes aren't on the way. They're here and still coming, with irreversible momentum.
