• OP-ED: Stay the Course for YARS and Camp Garfield

    Jan 04, 2019
    OP-ED by By Vito Abruzzino, Esq., Executive Director of the Eastern Ohio Military Affairs Commission During the past 12 to 18 months, much has happened concerning our local military assets. Both Camp Garfield (formerly Camp Ravenna) and the Youngstown Air Reserve Station (YARS) have had, arguably, their best year in more than a decade. To that end, the community as a whole, our state legislative leaders and our federal delegation have all contributed to their recent successes, with a nice “push” from the Youngstown /Warren Regional Chamber’s advocacy arm, the Eastern Ohio Military Affairs Commission (EOMAC). Where we go from here largely depends on staying the course and continuing to ring the bell for our local military installations.
