The Louisiana National Guard announced Thursday the contract to rid Camp Minden of millions of pounds of M6 propellant has been signed and is ready to move forward with the construction of the contained burn unit.

The amount is based on receipt of additional funding that comes from the U.S. Treasury’s Judgment Fund on behalf of the U.S. Army for the work, National Guard officials say.
