operational-security1The U.S. Army Forces Command has reopened a 27,000-square-foot facility at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to provide a training venue for uniformed personnel and support future intelligence missions, FayObserver.com reported Dec. 25.

Drew Brooks writes FORSCOM launched the Forces Command Intelligence Readiness & Operations Center on Dec. 16 four years after a tornado destroyed the then-Geospatial Readiness Center in April 2011.

FORSCOM collaborated with the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency to rebuild the facility, Brooks reports.

Col. Anthony Hale, deputy chief of staff for intelligence at FORSCOM, said the service branch will use FIROC to provide additional space for classified intelligence missions.
