KODIAK - The Kodiak National Guard Armory has been expanded to allow space for classrooms, an exercise center, a distance-learning room and a women's bathroom.
During this week's ribbon cutting, the improved armory was decorated with displays of military weapons and gear, as well as artifacts from the war in Iraq, such as a chair from Sadaam Hussein's palace in Baghdad.
Mayor Carolyn Floyd thanked the National Guard for its role in the city. Her husband, Joe Floyd, served as a unit commander for the guard in Kodiak from 1958 to 1962.
