FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. (AP) - Officers are moving into a new headquarters building at Fairchild Air Force Base.

The two-story brick structure replaces a wood-frame building built during World War II and known as The White House.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1hMSC1X ) the old headquarters will be torn down and the site used as a parade ground.

Sen. Patty Murray spoke at Thursday’s ribbon-cutting and said the $14 million building wasn’t built for a base that’s going to fade away. The senator is working to bring the new KC-46A tankers to Fairchild.

The new headquarters houses offices for the 92nd Air Refueling Wing and the Washington Air National Guard 141st Air Refueling Wing.
