Yeager Airport unveiled four reserved parking spaces designated for veterans wounded in combat while visiting or traveling the airport.
The new parking spots debuted today in honor of veterans on Veterans Day. The spots are located in the complimentary 20-minute lot across from the terminal building, on the fourth floor of the long-term parking garage and at Capital Jet Center.
A 2012 mission developed by Wounded Warriors Family Support based out of Omaha, Nebraska, made it possible in providing Yeager Airport with signs that grants reserved parking to wounded veterans.
Chairman of the Central West Virginia Regional Airport Authority Board of Members, Ed Hill said, “Yeager Airport is proud to offer this simple, ongoing salute to men and women injured in combat.”
County Commission President, Kent Carper said, “the Kanawha County Commission supports our veterans, and their families. The combat wounded should hold a special place in everyone’s thoughts and prayers. Veterans visiting our 2 Airport should feel the support and recognition they deserve.”
