LAS VEGAS–More than 100 participants and onlookers screamed their support for their fellow wounded warriors racing in the pool Monday at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. And standing on the periphery of the Buchanan Natatorium were six USO volunteers waiting to help however they could.
“They have a deep appreciation and passion for serving the military,” USO Las Vegas Center Director Jennifer Earl said.
The USO is celebrating National Volunteer Week at our 160-plus locations worldwide. But even as we honor the volunteers who fuel our organization, they continue to give back to America's service members. USO Las Vegas volunteers are supporting the Air Force Trials all week, which is the competition the service branch uses to select its entrants to this fall’s Warrior Games.
