Department of Defense support for Fort Bragg’s training range may reach millions.

The Senate Armed Services Committee had set to mark up the proposed $773 billion budget for the fiscal year 2023 for the Department of Defense. According to budget papers, Fort Bragg needed four multi-purpose training ranges but currently has none. The range would be used to educate personnel to detect, identify, engage, and destroy stationary infantry and stationary and moving armor targets. The projected budget for the Army is a $2.8 billion increase over the current fiscal year. The plan proposes decreasing regular Army troops from 485 000 to 473 000. It also offers a 4.6 percent increase in basic wage and a 3.9 percent increase in basic housing allowance.
