Construction is on schedule for the new military facility being built in Danbury. The Army Reserve Center being opened in Danbury now has a name. The facility being constructed on the Lee Farm Property will be known as Veterans Memorial Armed Forces Reserve Center.
The name is supported by the Danbury Council of Veterans, a group that represents six Veterans Posts and Organizations. Various elected officials including the City Council, the Mayor and the state's Congressional delegation also support the name.
Army reservist Tom Saadi says the name is meant to honor all military veterans in all branches throughout history.
8 Army Reserve Units, including the Danbury-based 411th Civil Affairs Battalion, and two units of the Connecticut National Guard will be assigned to the Center.
