Veteran's Day is Saturday, so the timing couldn't be more perfect for the official grand opening of the Military Welcome Center at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

This unveiling is part of the airport's gateway transformation project. The airport partnered with SpartanNash to make it happen.
