Major props to "Reverend W. Lee Eames, a chaplain at [the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International] airport and Pam Porter, then the communications coordinator," (Military Times) for persuading Delta to allow them to provide service members with "a room on Concourse B where they could go and have a snack, or talk to someone if they needed to. . . . Eames -- a certified therapist and ordained minister -- now provides guidance in that room, called the Military Room. . . . The room is marked with a simple banner featuring a bald eagle, and it provides Internet, television, lounge chairs and sleeping spaces" (Military Times). The Military Room is contributed to by various members of the community -- "food is donated by churches throughout Northern Kentucky and drinks are provided by Delta. . . . Children all across Northern Kentucky have helped stock the lounge with letters, as well as magazines and books, which the veterans can read at their leisure" (Military Times).
The best part is that the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Int'l airport is not the only one involved. Rev. Eames has also received requests from other airports asking how they can start their own Military Rooms.
