There was a steady stream of travelers flying into and out of Gerald R. Ford International Airport this morning.

While various members of the military returned home for the holidays, they greeted throughout Friday morning by the Kent County Honor Guard. The group is dedicated to recognizing the sacrifice of members of the armed forces.

The Honor Guard has been active in Kent County for 35 years.
