Missouri National Guard to add more than 400 jobs in state

The Missouri National Guard plans to add more than 400 full and part-time military police and transportation jobs in the state.

The guard says the new units will be placed across Missouri based on the size of the armory and the recruiting pool in the area. A new transportation battalion will be split between Fredericktown and Farmington and another transportation company will be split between Bridgeton and Columbia. The guard also will add a military police company in Lebanon.

Except for Bridgeton, all the cities currently have armories that will be used for the new units. Missouri Adjutant Gen. Steve Danner says the guard is working with the Bridgeton City Council to use a vacant building in that city for the new guard unit.
