Airport Lounges for Military, Veterans & Family
On a recent layover at DTW - Detroit Metro Airport I heard announcements inviting military service members, veterans and their families to visit the Freedom Center Lounge. A pretty great idea to serve those who serve us, run by a group of volunteers. The following is information from The Michigan Armed Forces Hospitality Center, Inc's website:
"Our goal is to provide a relaxed, home-like atmosphere that embraces and meets the needs of traveling service members and their families. Our facilities are supported and staffed by individual volunteers and organizations from surrounding communities and the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). Our doors are open to individuals on active duty, National Guard members, Reservists, and service academy cadets. We also welcome military dependents, military retirees and veterans.
To date, we have served over 250,000 active military personnel, their dependents, and veterans at our Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) Freedom Center in the McNamara Terminal. We are excited to announce that our 2nd DTW Freedom Center, located in the North Terminal, opened on December 17, 2015.
In addition to the hospitality centers at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, our Freedom Centers in Troy and Lansing help serve enlistees and their families during the enlistment and swearing-in process.
Our Freedom Centers retain their relaxed, home-like atmospheres that embrace and meet the need of traveling service members and their families, through generous monetary and in-kind donations. It is only through the support of our donors, our volunteers, and organizations from the airport and through surrounding communities that we can continue to offer world-class service.
These gifts to MAFHC truly further our goal of “serving those who serve us.”
There are many other airport lounges dedicated to serving our military families - a good resource is : The Military Frequent Flyer
