Makala A. Ashmar Military Resource Center

Military Resouce Room

 

Military Resource Center

Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) has unveiled the “Makala A. Ashmar” Military Resource Center – which honors the brave men and women who have served or are currently serving in the nation’s armed forces.

“We are extremely proud to open the Military Resource Center – a mission Makala started – the completion of which ensures her legacy lives on forever at ABE,” said Thomas R. Stoudt, Executive Director, Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA).

Makala inspired her family, friends, and colleagues during a courageous battle with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma – an aggressive and rare cancer of the bile duct. She passed away in September. Located just beyond the TSA Checkpoint (next to the Sensory Room in the Departure Building), military personnel and veterans can just slow down with a seat on the couch, decompress by watching some TV, or just grab a quick snack to go. Before taking off or returning from a deployment, traveling home for the holidays, or taking a well-deserved vacation – ABE hopes military personnel feel at home in your neighborhood airport.

This amazing project would not have been possible without the commitment of sponsors from across the Lehigh Valley: Presenting Sponsor: Service Electric Cable TV and Communications, Interior Workplace Solutions, Fast Signs of Easton, Mike Geiger, Lisa Scheller, NAM Nights, The Mayberry-Avizoff Family, Westgate Global Logistics, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Bethlehem Volunteer Fireman’s Home Association, Online Power Service, Inc., Blue Star Mom’s and Gold Star Mom’s, and LNAA staff.

Sensory Room

 

Sensory Room

Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE), in collaboration with the Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties have teamed-up to construct a “Sensory Room” – only the third airport in the world – for air travelers with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Located in the Wiley Departure Building, the room is equipped with mondo flooring, low frequency lighting, mounted projector and other sensory equipment.

This project has been on the radar for several years, but received a significant boost from many sponsors that made this Sensory Room a reality. Lead Sponsors: Mass Mutual / Pennwood
