Coming Together in New York:

The Army will be joining the Air Force at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station near Niagara Falls, N.Y., adding a $32 million readiness center that will house Army Reserve units currently residing outside the facility. The Buffalo News reports that Army Undersecretary Pete Geren announced the plan during a Tuesday visit to the station, saying the effort will “add to the efficiency of the base by allowing soldiers and airmen to work together.” Currently Air Force Reserve Command’s 914th Airlift Wing and the Air National Guard’s 107th Air Refueling Wing call the facility home. However, per BRAC 2005, the 107th ARW loses its KC-135 aircraft.
