Kansas National Guard Gets New Brigade

KSAL StaffOctober 16, 2014

The Kansas National Guard armory in Manhattan is gaining 15 full-time and 163 part-time jobs with the creation of a new brigade.

An activation ceremony is scheduled Sunday at the city’s Frank Anneberg Park for the new 130th Field Artillery Brigade.

The 130th Field Artillery Brigade Headquarters will provide command and control to subordinate field artillery units, including the 1st Battalion, 161st Field Artillery in Hutchinson and the 2nd Battalion, 130th Field Artillery in Hiawatha.

Officials say activation of the new brigade means about 400 Kansas National Guard members will now work at the Manhattan armory, most of them part-time for monthly drills and annual training.
