Leaders Decide to Close National Guard Facilities

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Army National Guard is home to 23 armories in the state.  But, after an in-depth analysis, leaders have decided to close the Hazen and Cavalier facilities by December. The decision to close these two city-owned armories in the state comes after a national focus to re-construct the Guard to regional armories. 

With a future of uncertainties both in North Dakota and the United States, the North Dakota Army National Guard is trying to sustain their forces and move away from rural areas, so they can respond to state emergencies quickly.

"It's something as North Dakota moves; we're just going through change together. And, change is never easy, but it together and transparent is the way to go," says Captain Steve Bohl, Minot North Dakota National Guard.

All of the full-time employees at the two offices have transitioned to other armories in the state.
