Ft. Leavenworth to Break Ground on New Center


LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) - Fort Leavenworth is planning a groundbreaking ceremony next week for a $15.6 million battleground simulation training center. Fort officials announced that the ceremony Wednesday will begin construction of a Regional Simulation Center, which will house the hardware, software and technology that simulate battlefield activity. The new center will provide training for the staffs and commanders of large units and a corps to help improve communication, coordination and planning skills. The Army says it will save money by consolidating the training technology, which currently is scattered at each corps and division headquarters. The Leavenworth Times reports construction of the 36,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed by January 2016.
