Alabama ANG Gets New Facility:

The Alabama Air National Guard is one step closer to getting a new operations and training facility for the 187th Fighter Wing at Dannelly Field, Ala., reports the Montgomery Advertiser. Officials broke ground on a new $10.9 million facility that will replace the wing’s current 50-year-old headquarters and put several functions under one roof. According to the newspaper, the unit has doubled in size since it moved from Birmingham in the 1950s.
