WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE — Army Secretary John McHugh was at Whiteman Air Force Base Friday to dedicate a new, $34 million hangar and maintenance facility for Army National Guard helicopters.

Missouri Congressman Ike Skelton also was on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the 83,000-square-foot facility. The base is home to 13 Army National Guard helicopters and plans to expand capacity for 24 new Apache Longbow helicopters.

McHugh says the new Army facility on the Air Force base is a great example of collaboration among the military branches. Whiteman also is home to the B-2 stealth bomber

The new Army National Guard facility was paid for with federal money.
