Unveiling a new facility, and a new name!
Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois, formerly Williamson County Regional Airport, celebrated its grand opening on November 11, 2016 in Marion, Illinois. It was only fitting that the airport opened its doors to the public during its dedication ceremony on Veteran’s Day. The newly coined Capt. Robert W. Duncan Terminal is named after Capt. Duncan who served in the U.S. Navy during War II and the Korean War. Capt. Duncan also served as chairman of the Williamson County Airport Authority from 1980-2001. The name change was a well kept surprise to the general public, which is a symbol of thanks and gratitude to our American heroes past and present.
