In an exclusive interview, Georgia Senator Jon Ossoff announced that over $90 million will be allocated to Fort Eisenhower for cyber security and child care. The Defense Authorization Act, which has passed both the U.S. House and Senate, will provide $70 million to expand classrooms and technology for cyber security training, and $21 million to fund a new child development center. Senator Ossoff explained that the child development center will add capacity for more than 100 additional children and will address a recruiting and quality-of-life issue for service members. The expansion of cyber security training facilities is aimed at meeting the increasing demand for cyber professionals and protecting national security. Senator Ossoff emphasized the importance of having a highly qualified and well-trained cyber force in the U.S. Army.

This investment in Fort Eisenhower reflects the recognition of the critical role that cyber security plays in national defense and the need to support military families. The child development center will not only provide much-needed child care for military families but also serve as a recruiting tool to attract and retain service members. The expansion of cyber security training facilities will help meet the growing demand for cyber professionals and ensure that the U.S. Army remains at the forefront of cyber defense. Overall, this funding highlights the government’s commitment to enhancing the capabilities and resources of military installations like Fort Eisenhower.
