The initial concept for a Military Courtesy Room was presented to the Airport Authority by Mr. John McKenna whose son, Captain John McKenna, IV, of Clifton Park, was killed on August 16th 2006 while serving in action with the US Marine Corps in Fallujah, Iraq.
The Captain John J. McKenna, IV Military Courtesy Room provides a place for traveling military personnel to rest and recreate as they await their flights and to assist them with any difficulties in their travels.
Light refreshments, snacks and a welcoming atmosphere will be offered to all military personnel who visit the courtesy room. The room is outfitted with cable TV, DVD, video games, telephone and internet access to enable guests to view and send email.
The Military Courtesy Room is staffed by volunteers. The Capital John J. McKenna, IV Military Courtesy room can be contacted at 518 242-4415.
