In addition to its activities, the USO also has food that Airmen can heat and serve themselves.
On Thanksgiving Day, the USO will offer a full meal to those who are on base, including dorm residents, Fisher House guests and guests staying in billeting quarters.
“It’s one of those things that wherever you go, you see a USO and you know it’s a place you can go, be amongst friends and feel welcomed while hearing great stories, too,” said Walthers.
She also encourages retired military and other family members traveling here to visit their family member on base, to stop by to reminisce and discover what the Wright-Patterson USO has to offer.
Thanksgiving Day, the USO cyber café will offer a wide array of foods and desserts.
“I don’t purchase anything here at the USO. Everything that is in this building was either donated or money was donated so we could purchase it. So we operate 100 percent on donations,” said Walthers.
Walthers added the community donates everything to the USO as a way to show how much they love the military members at Wright-Patterson.
