The West Virginia Army National Guard has proposed building three ranges at Camp Dawson in Preston County.
The ranges would be located on Briery Mountain. They include a live fire breach facility, a hand grenade familiarization range and an MK 19 range.
 
The Guard says the ranges are needed to provide in-state training for state Army National Guard units.
 
The Dominion Post reports that the Guard is seeking public comments on the proposed ranges. The deadline to submit comments is Nov. 22. Comments should be mailed to Jeffrey S. Miller at 1001 Army Road, Kingwood, WV 26537 or emailed to him at jeff.s.miller@us.army.mil.
