USO Guam got a big hat tip from the Guam National Guard this week, when it was presented the service’s Center of Influence Award for its work with troops and families during Operation Enduring Freedom. The award specifically covered USO Guam’s actions over the last two years of deployments, recognizing the center's constant support of both Guam National Guard troops and their families through deployment and homecoming ceremonies, USO center services and additional family support.
The award was presented Sunday during an official retreat ceremony at Guam National Guard Headquarters in Barrigada, Guam.
