I am so excited to be joining #TeamUSO for my fourth year. My story goes back to March of 2003 when I first enlisted in the United States Air Force, Visiting the USO Lounge at the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) in Gahanna, Ohio. Fast forward a few years, and three consecutive assignments at overseas locations... The USO lounge at Port Columbus International Airport became a constant stop on my travels back and forth to visit my family, always providing a place for my family and I to sit down, relax, and say our goodbyes. As fate would have it, ten years later I was assigned to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. The idea was in place to build a USO lounge on the installation...we just needed the funding. That was when I joined Team USO. One year later, on February 26th, 2016 we opened the doors to the Wright Patterson Air Force Base USO Center. 3 years later and the center is better than ever!
The USO has given so much to my family...This is my way to give back. They have so many great volunteers, events, and countless other ways that they outreach to our military personnel.
