Camp Perry Receives Federal Funds for Housing

It looks like Camp Perry received a decent chunk of change for some barracks for soldiers and shooters at the NRA matches.

State Representative Dennis Murray revealed funds that were allocated to the Camp Perry Joint Training Center Barracks I project in Port Clinton. The $222,680 distributed to this project was authorized and funded by Congress in the FY 2009 Military Construction and Veteran’s Affairs Budget.

The project consists of constructing an 8,700 square foot barracks that will provide temporary housing for approximately 80 soldiers while conducting weapons’ qualification, training exercises and several other functions at Camp Perry Joint Training Center. …

The facility will also be utilized during the National Rifle and Pistol Matches.
