The Department of Defense understands that the State of Oklahoma will close forty Oklahoma
Army National Guard Readiness Centers, close five Maintenance Facilities, realign two
Readiness Centers and one Maintenance Facility. The Armed Forces Reserve Centers will have
the capability to accommodate these units if the State decides to relocate the units from these
closed facilities into the new AFRCs.

Armed Forces Reserve Center that will be the right size and design to support our unit
and other local Guard and Reserve units that will be stationed there.
