BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Kentucky's First Lady Jane Beshear cut the ribbon at the new Kentucky National Guard Center on Friday.

A ceremony was held to unveil the National Guard's newest readiness center in Burlington, KY.

The $19 million facility will serve more than 300 men and women of the 1204th Aviation Support Battalion and the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management.

The readiness center is 86,000 square feet, designed to train and support military personnel in their mission for the Commonwealth, the nation and more.

"This building will serve the members of the National Guard who serve our Commonwealth," said Beshear. "My husband and I never cease to be amazed of our National Guard men and women. We appreciate the dedication of our Service members."

Officials say among many services, the center will also be open to provide limited veteran support to all branches of service, including ID cards, family services (financial, counseling, health benefits), TRICARE, Red Cross assistance and veterans benefits.
