Army secretary: Keep commissary open
The fight to keep the commissary at Fort Monmouth open past the post's closure date in September has received some significant backing. In a pair of letters addressed to Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez, Secretary of the U.S. Army John McHugh said he has directed the assistant secretary of the Army for installations, energy and environment to send an official request to the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness to keep the commissary open for a two-year transitional period following the fort's closure in September.
