Happy Veterans Day, and hello to all in service; thanks for everything you do.
For those of you passing through Northern California on the way to and from deployments around the world, I wanted to let you know about the three facilities serviced and staffed by the USO of Northern California: at San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC), and Travis AFB. The USO's mission is to provide welfare and morale to our service members in uniform, and their families. As many of you know, the USO facilities around the world provide a place tor relax, lounge, watch TV, or to get help from staffers.
I have been actively involved with the USO of Northern California. Those of you civilians who would like to support our troops locally, or who have enjoyed USO facilities in the past, won't you please consider making a donation on-line. Our new website is up and running at www.usonortherncalifornia.org
, and donations may be made on the Support Us
Or, to find your local USO, go to http://www.uso.org/whoweare/findyourlocaluso/
. There are USO locations in Southern California and the San Diego area as well.
Thanks again for your service.
