Security training center picked

The Air Force wants to build a training center for its security forces at Fort Bliss, Texas. Camp Guernsey, Wyo., is second choice for the Security Forces Ground Combat Training Center, which is expected to train 8,500 students per year by October 2014. Regional training centers at Creech Air Force Base, Nev., Fort Wolters, Texas, Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst, N.J., and Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., would close. Camp Guernsey, which specializes in nuclear training, would continue to be the center for Nuclear Training Excellence. The final decision will be made after an environmental study is completed this summer. (Sources: AFNS, Air Force Times, 06/27/13)
