State Guard Opening New Facility

The Connecticut National Guard is opening a new, $34 million center to consolidate its Army aviation units.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Sunday in Windsor Locks.

The 120,000-square-foot facility has classrooms, offices and training simulators.

Officials say hundreds of soldiers currently assigned to the Enfield Armory and Camp Hartell in Windsor Locks will relocate to the new facility.

National Guard officials say it will help them prepare for missions at home and overseas.
