WHITE PLAINS, MD - This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Army Reserve Center in Charles County. The new center replaces three existing centers and consolidates the Army Reserves training and day-to-day activities. The opening of the new center will spur job creation and economic growth in Charles County.
"I was proud to work closely with the Charles County Commissioners, state and local officials, and the Army Reserve to secure the funding for this new facility," said Congressman Hoyer. "Today's ceremony is a symbol of what happens when federal, state, local, and military stakeholders all work together toward a common goal. I was pleased to join in the ribbon cutting ceremony for this exciting new facility, which will bring new jobs to our County."
"The Army Reserve has long been a critical component of our national defense," continued Congressman Hoyer. "The Fifth District is proud to host many important military installations and facilities, including Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Indian Head, and Webster Field. I look forward to what the future holds for this facility, and I will continue to work closely with my colleagues to ensure that Southern Maryland continues to be an attractive place for our military to operate."
