Staff and volunteers at the USO Center Ali Al Salem in Kuwait decided the place could use a little renovating. Center Manager Valerie A. Burnham explained a bit of the overhaul:
“The first 2 photos are ‘before’…The last photos are 'after’…
We painted the walls a warm butter yellow with gray/green inlay to give our USO a more 'homey’ feel. We also divided the big living room into two sections, U-shaping the couches to provide a modern appearance. We also fixed the couches and cleaned them. We hung two TV’s on each side of the room, one over the fire place.
