A Vermont National Guard armory in Lyndonville has received a $350,000 makeover.
Members of the troop that benefited from the makeover held an open house last weekend to demonstrate some of the new gear.
They also demonstrated the techniques they use in their soldiering, which focuses on mountain warfare and rock climbing.
Brigadier General Brian Carpenter is assistant adjutant general of the Vermont National Guard.
He tells the Caledonian Record that the changes provide better storage, more classroom space, improved handicap access and new restrooms and showers in the 50-year-old building.
