Roy Anderson Gets $25 Million Federal Contract

Roy Anderson Corp. of Gulfport has received a nearly $25 million federal contract for construction at Sheppard Air Force Base, said U.S. Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss. Roy Anderson will build a dormitory and dining facility at the Texas base, Lott said Monday.

"As we are engaged in a global war on terror, it is important to bolster our domestic and national military assets, and provide important upgrades that will serve our armed forces well into the 21st Century,'' Lott said.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in January 2004.
