Tenn. Guard recruiters returning soon to storefront offices
State officials hope to have Tennessee National Guard recruiters back in their storefront offices in Chattanooga and across the state in coming days.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1MQOBdN ) reports final touches on security upgrades are being made in response to a deadly attack in July. National Guard recruiters have been working out of armories since July.
The temporary relocation of the seven offices was prompted by 24-year-old Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s Chattanooga shooting rampage. Abdulazeez first shot at a U.S. military recruiting office, located next door to a state National Guard office in a strip mall.
The gunman then drove to a U.S. Naval Reserve Center, where he killed four Marines and fatally injured a Navy petty officer before he was shot to death during a confrontation with Chattanooga police.
