A ribbon cutting on the new Warrior Zone is set for Tuesday at the northeast Kansas post. The center is located in a new 25,000-square-foot building constructed specifically to meet soldier needs.

Soldiers will have access to 68 computers for general use and gaming, video game consoles, poker and pool, a snack bar and a theater, along with grills and a fire pit.
