TOPEKA, Kan. -- Wichita native and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates will be honored later this month by the Kansas National Guard.
The Guard announced Thursday it will name its intelligence complex at McConnell Air Force Base after Gates. Dedication for the Robert M. Gates Intelligence Complex is set for May 30.
Gates served as Defense Secretary between 2006 and 2011. He was director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 1991 to 1993.
The three-building complex at McConnell Air Force Base is home to more than 350 airmen who help produce intelligence information collected by various manned and unmanned aircraft.
In April, it was announced that Gates would join an international consulting firm headed by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
