FORT LEONARD WOOD — Rep. Ike Skelton said Fort Leonard Wood will get an additional $111 million to help construct two trainee barracks.

The fort had already received more than $175 million for construction projects in this year's National Defense Authorization Act.

Skelton said in a news release that Congress included a total of $350 million in the defense bill to improve trainee barracks throughout the country. He said the men and women who serve their country deserve well-maintained training facilities.
