The USO opened the doors to its newest center on Oct. 2 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Naval Station Rota, Spain. The base situated on the Mediterranean coast has been described as a “hidden jewel” and the “best place we’ve ever lived,” but the experience of being stationed there is even better now that the USO and its world-class programs and services are available on base.
With the addition of Spain, the USO now operates locations in 14 countries around the world and is honored and excited to have an opportunity to support the service members and military families stationed there. See photos from our opening day celebration below.
