Last week, the Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce formally showed support for ongoing efforts to fund next phase of the Regional Training Institute (RTI) at Camp Minden. The resolution is part of a growing list of supporters of the project including the Webster Parish Police Jury and the Bossier Parish Police Jury. Others are expected to do the same.
Since completion of phase one, the RTI cycles approximately 2,000 soldiers annually. Once all four phases are complete, the RTI will cycle about 10,000 soldiers, including noncommissioned officers training which will be moved from Camp Cook in Ball, La. to Camp Minden.
