The busiest walk-in military recruiting station in the entire United States, located at Times Square, has reopened.

Representatives of all branches of the military showed up for the grand-reopening ceremony this month. The station -- first opened in 1946 -- has gone through a modernization.

"We are happy to be here in the heart of New York City, on the day before we honor veterans across the nation, to celebrate the reopening of the Times Square recruiting station," said Stephanie Miller, director of military accession policy for the Department of Defense. "This is an iconic building in a truly iconic location, and the updates made to this building will allow our recruiters to better serve the community."

The station is at 200 W. 43rd St., the epicenter of Times Square. It's also the first joint armed-forces recruiting station in the country.

The station is a location for military recruiters to talk to potential enlistees and also serves as a spot for members of the military to watch the famous ball drop on New Year's Eve.
