The relatively new multi-million dollar army reserve center at Big Bend may be closed, although there is no official confirmation. Off-the-record sources say the decision has been made to close the center which houses the 305th Military Police unit.

Calls to company officers and officials have not been returned since last Friday, and a call to Sen. Robert Byrd was unanswered yesterday because his office was closed.

The reason for closing was reportedly linked to a lack of new recruits within a 50 mile radius of the armory, but a local source said recruiters have paid little attention to recruitment for the unit in recent years.

The company was placed on active duty since 9-11.
