Nebraska Guard ready to build armory at Air Force base

Jul 5, 2019


Nebraska National Guard officials say the guard is leasing space on a U.S. Air Force base south of Omaha for a new armory.

The guard's Col. Shane Martin says what will be called the Bellevue Readiness Center will include office space, a drill floor, a large kitchen, maintenance bays for guard vehicles and an elevated classroom.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that federal funding for the project hasn't been approved in the final Pentagon budget in the past two federal fiscal years and could be pushed back again.
