The remains of a West Michigan man killed when his plane crashed during World War II are coming home. The remains of Navy Airman Albert Rybarczyk of St. Joseph will be flown back to Michigan on Thursday. There will be a full military funeral on Monday and then Rybarczyk will be buried next to his parents at St. Joseph's Resurrection Cemetery. 

In an early observance of Veterans Day, Spartan Nash and the Gerald R. Ford International Airport officially cut the ribbon Thursday on the airport’s new Military Welcome Center. The new, multi-million dollar private space is located in the airport’s pre-security area, and is a 24-hour lounge for active military, veterans and their families to relax when traveling.

Airport President and CEO Jim Gill says the Military Welcome Center is the least that the airport could do for the country’s veterans.
