Auditor General Jack Wagner Praises Army for Saving Kelly Support Facility Commissary
Date:10/21/2008

But says that ancillary services should also be maintained

HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Auditor General Jack Wagner today applauded the Secretary of the Army's announcement that the commissary and post exchange at the Charles E. Kelly Support Facility in Oakdale will remain open until a new commissary is built in Moon Township.

Secretary Pete Green recently sent a letter to U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D) apprising him that the Army had reached an agreement with the Defense Commissary Agency and the Air Force Exchange Service to preserve Kelly's commissary and PX operations.

"I'm gratified that an agreement has been reached to preserve the Kelly commissary and post exchange," said Wagner, a Vietnam War combat veteran who served in the U.S. Marines. "These two facilities provide vital services to 167,000 military veterans and their families, including those with physical disabilities as well as the spouses of active military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. I commend Senators Arlen Specter and Bob Casey, as well as the western Pennsylvania congressional delegation led by Rep. Jack Murtha, for their hard work in behalf of our deserving military veterans."

Wagner said that Green's letter was a "great first step," but that additional clarification was needed from the Army because Green's letter did not explicitly ensure that other necessary services at the Kelly Support Facility, such as the community center, a fitness center, and an Identification Card Section, would also be maintained.

"To properly serve all of the military veterans in Western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia who rely on the Kelly Support Facility, it is imperative that all necessary ancillary facilities are preserved," Wagner said.
