  • We love our military neighbors and welcome them to our communities and events. We have many annual family-style festivals, parades and celebrations that are open to any and everyone. 

  • Who we are:

    Fort Polk Progress is a regional organization focused on coordinating the efforts of the local communities, the State of Louisiana and the Louisiana Congressional delegation in supporting the Army, the mission at Fort Polk, and the quality of life for soldiers and their families who are stationed in Louisiana. 


    Our members form a diverse group made up of community leaders, business owners, military retirees, government employees and concerned citizens. Together, we provide a variety of skills that will be utilized to not only ensure that Fort Polk remains open, but that it will become a station of choice for military families.

    Why is it so important that Fort Polk remain open? The loss of Fort Polk would be devastating to our local economy. The most recent Military Economic Impact Analysis for the State of Louisiana, completed in 2017, states that Fort Polk, among other things, directly contributed more than 14,000 jobs and over $760 million in payroll to our area.
