YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and its Eastern Ohio Military Affairs Commission wants the public to know that members of the Mahoning Valley’s congressional delegation secured more than $16 million for the Youngstown Air Reserve Station and the Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center.
YARS, which generates approximately $100 million per year for the local economy, will receive $8.8 million for infrastructure improvements to increase security, which is necessary to help protect the facility against base realignment and closure.
