FedEx Operations Support Agent Lead Joel Fernando takes his job very seriously. As a courier who makes regular deliveries to and from the sailors and Marines in Dubai, he finds that volunteering with the USO makes his work flow smoothly.
“I am a volunteer because I want to have a stronger relationship with the USO and the U.S. Navy,” Fernando said. “They feel at home when they see FedEx inside the USO.”
Fernando, who works and lives in Dubai, hasn’t served in the military himself, but he still finds the USO to be his home away from home.
“If I’m here, I’m FedEx. If I’m a volunteer, I’m purely USO.”
You can send a message of support and thanks directly to service members via the USO’s Campaign to Connect. Your messages will appear on screens at USO locations around the world.
