Contractor cutting 200 jobs at Camp Atterbury

EDINBURGH (AP) — More than 200 workers are being laid off from a contractor at the Indiana National Guard's Camp Atterbury as the base wraps up preparing soldiers for overseas deployments.

Strategic Resources Inc. says in a state layoff filing that it is cutting 207 jobs as its contract with the Defense Department ends this month. The Virginia-based company has provided clerical and other support services at Camp Atterbury since 2007.

The Daily Journal reports some 20,000 soldiers a year came through the base before and after deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. About 5,000 soldiers on such deployments were expected this year.

Maj. Lisa Kopczynski tells the Indianapolis Business Journal that for the first time in a decade Atterbury doesn't expect to mobilize any service units next year.
