A ceremony at a national guard armory this weekend is not to welcome troops home. The Dubuque armory, built in 1985, has been renovated and expanded. A local architect designed natural lighting, geo-thermal heating and high-efficiency windows into the design, which adds a classroom, supply room, break-room and communications-equipment “hub.” There’s also administrative, family-support and recruiting office space added in the renovation, which cost just under a million in all — 957-thousand dollars. The fifteen-55th Quartermaster Detachment and Companies “A” and “D,” First Battalion, 133rd Infantry are based out of the Dubuque Armory. Saturday the soldiers, their families and friends, and the general public all will be welcomed to an open house to see all the changes at the Dubuque armory and take part in a community re-dedication ceremony from ten to noon.
