Armed Forces Reserve Center

The Oklahoma National Guard's proactive approach to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission's efforts to transform and restructure the force has produced the construction of seven new Armed Force Reserve Centers. 

Oklahoma was one of the first states in the nation to implement BRAC mandates by awarding bids on the construction of four new Armed Force Reserve Centers. 

The Muskogee Armed Force Reserve Center was the third project under the lead of the Oklahoma Army National Guard to begin construction. 

The new 97,000 square foot facility cost nearly $23.0 million dollars to construct, and includes training areas, a drill floor, arms vaults, administrative areas, a kitchen and classrooms. 

The Armed Forces Reserve Center was designed to be reminiscent of both the historical armories of the early 1800s and the Oklahoma armories built in the 1930s. The impressive 7,500-square-foot drill hall, which features a 22-foot-more-eave height and barrel-vault roof, serves as the focal point of the facility.

Completed in February 2011, the facility serves not only National Guardsmen, but also reserve branches of the Marine Corps, Army and Navy with as many as 600 Guardsman at the center two weekends a month.
