“On behalf of the members of Detachment One, Company D 724th Engineer Battalion (C), I extend a cordial invitation to the citizens of Abbotsford, Colby and the surrounding communities to attend our armory dedication and open house,” 1LT Schoelzel said.
“Because of the outstanding support given by community leaders and others in the Abbotsford area, your hometown Guard unit will now have the kind of facility it needs to attract new members and accelerate its training readiness program in preparation for state and national emergencies,” he said.
The new armory replaces the old Abbotsford armory, which was built in 1922 and has been used continuously to train the Abbotsford Guard unit. Primary use of the new armory will be for training and administering Guard personnel, and storing federal and state property issued to the Guard.
