Chief of Staff Tells Arsenal Workers War to Be Long

Schoomaker was at Arsenal Island Wednesday and told workers they are playing an important role in that war because of the Arsenal's unique capability.

With a base closings list set to come out next year, arsenal officials have sought to spread the word of their value to the military supply chain.

Schoomaker just returned from Iraq and other countries in the region. He's been the Army's Chief of Staff for less than a year.
