Missouri National Guard Plans To Close Three SeMo Armories

October 27, 2003 - Posted at 11:39 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - The Missouri National Guard says it will close six armories and restructure some of its units.

The guard says the moves are part of a larger restructuring ordered by the federal government.

Adjutant General Dennis Shull says the armories that will close are in Neosho, Salem, St. Ann, Bernie, Charleston and Caruthersville.

The units based at those armories will be moved to others.  Shull says the Guard will not de-activate any units, or reduce its strength.

One new unit, the 880th Engineer Company, will be based in Dexter.  And Fort Leonard Wood will be used more as a home for several units.  Shull says a reconnaisance and decontamination chemical company will be started in the St. Louis area.
