Civilian jobs are being lost

  • Follow Letters

I have read how the Fort Gordon Public Affairs Department is telling the local news media that just a few Fort Gordon jobs are going away.

I have worked there for more than seven years, and many of my friends and I are being laid off at the end of March. We will all be leaving our jobs to go on unemployment.

Why is it impossible for anyone within our government to ever tell the whole truth? I would love to do an interview at my home or at Fort Gordon to say that many civilians are losing their jobs.

Part of the problem is the

Part of the problem is the PAO who served the fort for over 30 years was forced to retire in Jan 2012. I heard him on the radio one morning talking about his career. Funny that there was never a big deal or retirement ceremony for him. It never made the paper like it should have. After making inquiries, I discovered his retirement was in reality being let go. The new leaders of the signal corps decided Jim wasn't who they wanted for the "face" of the fort. They wanted an officer (a uniform) to represent them, not a well trained and respected "civilian." So that's probably why there is no info coming out on this issue. That's the way the leaders want it. Never mind huge civilian cuts are coming and will greatly affect the tax base of all of the CSRA. They don't care cause they'll rotate out of here and leave all of us natives behind. So yea, this writer is telling the truth and the press needs to get on this story as it will affect everyone's lives in the CSRA.
