Hoeven, Guard Dedicate $12 Million Addition to Camp Grafton

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven today joined members of the North Dakota National Guard at a ceremony to dedicate the completion of a $12 million addition and alteration project of the Camp Grafton Readiness Center. The project, funded by Congress, remodeled the existing Readiness Center, adding more than 55,000 square feet of new space to the center and incorporating green building design to the renovation. The Readiness Center is used for troop education and training activities at Camp Grafton.

“The Camp Grafton Training Center has long served as an important training, housing and operations hub for the North Dakota National Guard,” said Hoeven. “The fine members of our National Guard have come to rely on this center, and it is important that we make sure it continues to meet the needs of our ever-evolving and innovating Guard. The new Readiness Center addition helps meet this important goal, and we’re grateful to everyone who worked to complete this project.”

The completed renovation project marks the first North Dakota Army National Guard building to receive LEED Silver certification, reflecting the green technology used to complete the addition and alterations which have added new administrative, storage, locker room, and vehicle space to the Readiness Center located within the Camp Grafton Training Center. Camp Grafton is a National Guard Maneuver Training Center operated by the North Dakota National Guard. The completed facility will house the North Dakota Army National Guard Training Center Detachment, the 136th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, and the 3662nd Maintenance Company.

Senator Hoeven is a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations and serves on the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Subcommittee.
