Even the Air Force knows a good burger is hard to find.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports Kay was scheduled to return Monday to his base in Okinawa, Japan, and learned about Tuesday's planned opening in Genoa Township.

The Howell High graduate had returned to Howell with his wife and children to visit family. The 34-year-old loader master on C-130 cargo planes says he was "kind of heartbroken" about possibly missing the opening.

Kay says there isn't anything that comes close to a White Castle burger where he's stationed.
