Joint Base Charleston in South Carolina is getting a new child care facility that will be able to serve more than 300 youngsters.
Base spokeswoman Trish Gallaway says Thursday's opening replaces a 38-year-old facility that could handle about half as many children.
The new center is being named for Brig. Gen. Thomas Mikolajcik (mik-oh-LY'-chik) who was the former commander of the 437th Airlift Wing and base commander in the 1990s. He was instrumental in bringing C-17 transports to the base.
The general died last April after battling Lou Gehrig's disease.
