Visit commemorates communications pioneer

Air Force Network Integration Center officials welcomed family and friends of Lt. Gen. Harold W. Grant here March 28 to learn more about the late general's legacy and see firsthand the building named in his honor.

General Grant is recognized as a communications pioneer who avidly worked to ensure Air Force operators had the best communications support possible.
