DETROIT, December 12 — Delta Air Lines has expanded its support for members of the military and their families traveling through Detroit Metropolitan Airport during the holiday season by becoming the Presenting Sponsor of the “Holiday Military Salute” at the Freedom Center military lounge.
The airline’s support of the Michigan Armed Forces Hospitality Center, Inc. makes possible a month-long Holiday Military Salute program at Freedom Center, located adjacent to Gate A43 in DTW’s McNamara Terminal. As Presenting Sponsor, Delta is ensuring that our military and their family members enjoy the comforts of a world-class military lounge, including complimentary soft drinks, coffee, juices, bottled water, snacks and sandwiches during their holiday travels.
“Delta Air Lines has been a wonderful supporter of Freedom Center since we opened our doors in November of 2011,” said Ken Pratt, president of Michigan Armed Forces Hospitality Center, Inc.
Freedom Center is located in DTW’s McNamara (Delta Air Lines) Terminal, adjacent to Gate A43. It is only steps away from the terminal’s center fountain. Freedom Center’s location is noted on all airport maps.

Freedom Center at DTW offers a variety of services to meet the special travel needs of in-transit military personnel and their families.
Our mission is to provide a world-class reception and hospitality center for military personnel at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Our goal is to provide a relaxed, home-like atmosphere that embraces and meets the needs of traveling service members and their families. This facility is supported and staffed by individual volunteers and organizations from surrounding communities and the airport. Our doors are open to individuals on active duty, National Guard members, Reservists, and service academy cadets. We also welcome military dependents, retirees and, space permitting, all veterans.
Meeting the needs of our guests is the sole purpose of the Freedom Center. Everyday our volunteer staff members step up to meet that challenge. We’re always looking for dedicated, reliable, and talented individuals to join our team. Some volunteers work weekly shifts on-site greeting guests and assisting with their needs as they travel; others work remotely providing various other services and support. We are particularly in need of volunteers who are able to work between midnight and 6 A.M. to assist our overnight guests.
