Wreath-laying for President Ford's 100th birthday

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- President Gerald Ford was remembered in his hometown of Grand Rapids in honor of his 100th birthday.

Dozens gathered at Ford's tomb for a wreath-laying ceremony near his Presidential Library and museum.

During the memorial, the museum unveiled a model of the aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford.

"And so, it was one of those things...that we always do the wreath-laying, and how can we make the wreath-laying even more special? And with us doing the fund raising, to change the museum...and to change the the first new exhibit is the ship," said President Ford's Daughter, Susan Ford Bales.

The President's namesake carrier is currently under construction. It is scheduled to launch later this year.
