VVA Chapter 1088 supports USO at Christmas and throughout the year

The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1088 is very pleased and proud to present a Christmas check to the USO-Jax through one of its representatives, Mr. Doug Ferry, for $500.00. VVA 1088 supports the USO-Jacksonville every two months during the year with large donations of supplies, such as soft drinks, individual snacks of many varieties, grooming products, and many other essentials for its 3 USO facilities located at Jacksonville International Airport, Naval Base Jacksonville and Naval Base Mayport. Since 2006, the USO-Jax Airport alone, has had over a quarter million grateful military personnel pass through its facility.

The facilities offer veterans of all eras and their families, at no cost to them, a much needed support system of phones and computers, food, supplies, contacts, a place to rest, and much more. There are more than 500 USO facilities worldwide serving our best for over 75 years.

The USO Internationally and in the States, has been serving our military men and women of all eras since 1941, making goods, services and entertainment possible, even in war ravaged zones around the world from the beginning of World War II to the present, thanks to the efforts of its excellent 
management and volunteer corps. To become a volunteer, donate or for more information contact Jim Bury by text or phone at 904-305-4467. "
