(EDINBURGH) - Indiana's Camp Atterbury expects to lose up to 400 jobs this year as the war in Afghanistan winds down, but it's hoping to drum up new business by attracting high-ranking military leaders for conferences.

Camp Atterbury officials say the post is actively marketing itself to units across the country as a place where they can come to do training.

Col. Ivan Denton tells The Republic that most infantry units currently go to Fort Leavenworth, Kan., for the training exercises, but no post offers them for artillery, battlefield surveillance and combat aviation.

Camp Atterbury hopes to fill that void by offering its facilities year-round.

Denson says the post also is pitching year-round conference space at costs well below those of Washington, D.C.
