ST. LOUIS Co. (KSDK) - The number of Air National Guardsmen at Jefferson Barracks will double in the coming years.
It's a result of the Good Friday tornado that heavily damaged the Air National Guard base at Lambert Airport two years ago.
Several Air Guard units that were once stationed at Lambert are moving to Jefferson Barracks.
The move will bring an additional 300 guardsman to the base, bringing the total number to more than 650.
The entire process will take about two years.
