When severe thunderstorms hit the Dallas/Fort Worth area and caused widespread flight cancellations and flight delays of more than 25 hours, USO Northwest staff members attending the USO Leadership Conference in Dallas were also stranded at the airport.
Who do you turn to for help at most any airport worldwide? That’s right, the USO!
USO-NW Executive Director Don Leingang (right) and USO-NW Director of Development Tim Bogle (left) quickly worked with USO DFW staff to make arrangements to keep the USO Center open overnight to assist stranded military members and their families. With every chair in the center taken, more than 120 service members and their families were grateful for a safe place to catch up on some much needed rest.
Just another example of how USO responds to the needs of our service members and their families, as the #ForceBehindTheForce
