Boozman Tours Fort Chaffee Facilities

News

FORT CHAFFEE, Ark. (KNWA) – U.S. Sen. John Boozman (R) made a trip to Fort Chaffee Monday to tour the facility’s bombing range and check on the progress of a multimillion dollar training area.

Boozman secured funding for air guard ranges, like Razorback Range, with the passage of a senate defense appropriations bill last week.

Fort Chaffee is using some of that money to help build the new training area.

It will include a Class A kinetic range, unique river crossing, and other facilities.

“We can be very proud. There’s units that come from all over the country that want to come here because we have such excellent facilities,” Boozman said.

Boozman says the facilities will help soldiers learn their job, but also to be safe while doing it.

No word on when the new area will be completed.
