The Veterans Memorial Armed Forces Reserve Center has been dedicated. The ribbon was cut Friday afternoon on the $35 million dollar facility, located at 90 Wooster Heights Road in Danbury.
City Councilman Tom Saadi, a U.S. Army reservist, says he is proud of the facility because Danbury has a long history of military support. Military officials, Senator Chris Murphy, the Mayor and others were on hand for the opening ceremony.
Eight Army Reserve Units, including the Danbury-based 411th Civil Affairs Battalion, and the Connecticut National Guard are assigned to the Center.
