The organizational colors of the U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery School and Center, the 6th Air Defense Artillery Brigade and its three battalions were cased Wednesday at Memorial Circle for its relocation to Fort Sill, Okla.
Due to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act, the ADA school will be consolidated with the Field Artillery School and Center to create a Net Fires Center at Fort Sill.
