— A military depot in northeast Texas will lay off nearly 370 workers amid the downsizing of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Red River Army Depot on Wednesday announced plans for layoffs in February due to completion of work such as military vehicle and rocket system repairs.

A news release says changes in troop strength and budget requirements translate to workload reductions and personnel adjustments.

More than 4,000 people work at the Red River Army Depot — making it the largest employer in Bowie County. The complex is located near Hooks, about 15 miles from the Texas border with Arkansas.

The depot has established a transition support center, with assistance from both states, to help laid-off employees.
