WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Senate this week authorized $3.3 million in federal funding for Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) urged the Armed Services Committee to include this funding for Camp Ravenna.‎

“To prepare our National Guard for its future missions, we must invest in the best training facilities possible,” said Brown. “This funding will allow Camp Ravenna to upgrade its facilities to ensure that our citizen-soldiers get the training they deserve.”

The funding would help make improvements to the Camp’s indoor firing range facility. This range is used to train and test soldiers against stationary targets for day and night qualifications with their service rifles. The funds would help improve the existing training for both overseas contingency operations as well as routine preparedness.
