GREENSBURG, Pa. – The 14th Quartermaster Detachment Memorial located at the Army Reserve Center here is undergoing a $197,000 refurbishment that is due to be complete by the end of November.
Reilly Construction Inc. is set to replace the memorial’s concrete walls and sidewalks, polish and seal all statues and plaques, install new plants and shrubs, replace mulch with landscaping stones and replace old lighting with new Light-Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures.
The project comes a few months before the 25th anniversary of the Iraqi missile attack that killed 13 of the detachment’s Soldiers in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm.
The 99th RSC’s mission is to provide facilities, programs and services to Soldiers, civilians and their families in the Northeast Region, to support Army readiness, to sustain the all-volunteer force and to ensure infrastructure for current and future mission requirements.
The 99th RSC provides vehicle maintenance at 26 Area Maintenance Support Activities, equipment storage and maintenance at nine Equipment Concentration Sites, administrative support at 14 Regional Personnel Action Center hubs and satellite offices, and training support at more than 250 Reserve Centers located throughout its 13-state region stretching from Maine to Virginia.
