Letterkenny Army Depot Showcase

Last night, Congressman Shuster attended the Letterkenny Army Depot Industry Showcase in Chambersburg. The fourth annual showcase highlighted Letterkenny's impact on the local economy and its success in preparing our warfighters for the battlefield in an ever changing wartime environment.

The keynote speaker at last night's event was Brigadier General Bennet Sacolick, the Deputy Commanding General of the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School based at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. General Sacolick pulled from a wealth of experience in special operations and irregular warfare while addressing the audience on the future of warfare. During his speech, the General pointed out how the vehicles built at the Letterkenny Depot, especially the MRAP mine resistant vehicle, directly saved the lives of his soldiers in the field in Iraq.
