|USO Center in Hawthorne NV|
I remember a smiling group of women offering coffee, punch, sandwiches, and cookies while waiting at the airport in Seattle for my plane to Korea. The friendly ambiance of the lounge provided a wonderful opportunity to relax and watch TV before the long flight.
An event I will always remember is the group of Korean country-western singers at the Osan AFB USO Center. The Grand Old Opry-style presentation was part of their warmup tour. It truly did help provide a sense of home away from home to US military personnel.

What better way to celebrate Thankful Thursday than by remembering the individuals and groups that get up and do for others rather than sitting down and wondering what can be done?
