WASHINGTON (KWWL) -
An Iowa Army National Guard building has gotten a $2 million facelift. Sunday was the rededication ceremony for the guard's Washington Readiness Center.
The building was originally built in the 1980s and needed a complete renovation, from the kitchens to the weight room.
Soldiers say the renovations were needed so they could train with the right equipment.
"It's incredibly important for not only the readiness of the unit but also for us to be able to recruit in the communities to get men and women to continue to join the Iowa National Guard," said Colonel Greg Hapgood.
Construction on the new center finished in October. The building is now home to the 294th Medical Company. Approximately 100 soldiers are based there.
