When military soldiers came back from Iraq or deployment, upon their plane landing USO personnel and the local fire department shot water over the plane to show respect / a blessing that our soldiers returned home safe.
She has been working there for 7 years after she retired.
Chose to volunteer because she wanted to give back to the community and also has family ties to military.
It was a pleasure speaking with her.

"The most favorable asset of the USO was my ability to have refreshment at my will. The customer service of the USO is one of the best I've ever experienced. The love in the cost of military personnel, and their families motivates you to come back.
Additionally, the experience of the USO encouraged me to volunteer overseas in Kuwait. I felt it was the only way I could repay the USO society for it's unselfish and dedication to my military brothers and sisters.
I am beyond pleased, and grateful to the USO."
