The group, Fort Polk Progress, recently held a letter writing campaign and collected more than 34 thousand letters endorsing the army base. These letters will be sent to the Army Environmental Command.

Fort Polk Progress says the amount collected was more than any other installation in the country. More than 111 thousand letters went out, representing around 30 military bases in danger of being closed.
