Camp Shelby set to undergo major upgrades

To help improve the quality of life for soldiers and airmen at Camp Shelby, major upgrades to facilities will soon take place.

Two new state-of-the- art, battalion- size barracks are scheduled to be built. Each will have four stories and will house 500 soldiers.

Other improvements include an upgrade to the all ranks club, and expansion of the gym and doubling the size of the weight room.

All these upgrades are being made to improve the quality of life for the soldiers and airman who train at Shelby.

"Anything we can do to make the life of that soldier better or airmen better while they are here for their period of time, that's what we want to do. We continue to make progress in a lot of different life things here at Shelby to make quality of life better for our soldiers and airmen," general freeman says most likely these projects will be funded this year.
