New Hampshire armories are running out of room
“In addition to more personnel, and they don’t fit in the buildings, we now have massive trucks. And instead of the Jeeps we used to have when these armories were built, we now have Humvees,” he said.
In the past year, however, expansion work was completed at an armory in Milford, and plans are going forward for another in Portsmouth.
That, Mikolaities said, is the home of the National Guard’s 744th Force Support Company, a supply and maintenance unit.
“It’s a huge unit; personnel don’t fit in one armory,” said Mikolaities, adding that Guard brass does not give out specific troop numbers for security reasons.
Mikolaities said the goal is to break ground in Littleton by fall. But there’s a catch.
Through Jan. 19, residents can view plans and documents at the Littleton town offices and forward their comments and suggestions to National Guard officials at the State Military Reservation Building in Concord.
