The USO Center at the San Antonio International Airport has recently completely a renovation and expansion process! At 5,100 square feet, the center certainly lives up to the motto that “Everything’s Bigger in Texas.” With room for a computer center, a theater, snack bar, television, pool tables, gaming rooms, and a space set aside just for kids, there’s something for everyone.
San Antonio, TX, is located at a nexus of Troop activity, with Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Brooks City-Base, and Brooke Army Medical Center. Because of their proximity to BAMC, the center will also feature activities and entertainment designed specifically for wounded Troops.
We’re thrilled to expand the services and space available at USO San Antonio and invite Troops and their families to stop by and see is on their way through the airport! Check out some pics from yesterday’s Grand Reopening festivities…
