It’s going to be a hard anniversary to top.
Four USO service members of the year joined Justin Timberlake on the red carpet for the premiere of his new movie “Runner, Runner” on Wednesday night at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. USO supporter 20th Century Fox provided the Hollywood experience for the military couples.
The night had extra meaning for USO Marine of the Year Sgt. Andrew Seif and his wife, Dawn, who were celebrating their third wedding anniversary.
The four service members who attended the premiere - Seif, USO Coast Guardsman of the Year Petty Officer 3rd Class Samuel A. Peikert, USO Airman of the Year Staff Sergeant Christopher D. Broyles and USO Sailor of the Year Petty Officer 1st Class Andrew “Chris” Munden - will be honored at the USO Gala on Oct. 25 in Washington along with USO Soldier of the Year Sgt. Craig Warfle and USO National Guardsman of the Year Staff Sgt. Christopher D. Petersen.
