Governor Dedicates New Owensboro Armory

May 30, 2012

Governor Steve Beshear was in Owensboro Wednesday for the dedication of the Kentucky Army National Guard Readiness Center. The facility is located adjacent to the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport, which gives the Guard quick accessibility around the state and serves as a distribution point if supplies need to be flown in during a disaster or emergency.

The $14 million facility has more than 35,000 square feet of offices, classrooms, drill halls and storage. 

It serves as a home for the 206th Engineer Battalion.
