Cordele-- Southwest Georgia Guardsmen have an up-to-date place to train for war.

The National Guard Armory in Cordele is more than 50 years old-- but its hard to tell now. When the Company B Infantry Unit went to Bosnia in February 2001, the armory was torn down and rebuilt, with more classrooms and training area.

The unit has not been called back to duty yet, but the soldiers are getting ready. "No, we are just staying ready as a Guard unit. We haven't heard anything, but we're ready to go when they say go," said Sgt. John Blackshear.

It took more than a year to complete the renovations. The company moved back in August.
