Way to go, USO of South Carolina, in getting May to be officially recognized as “USO Awareness Month.” This is especially exciting considering that the USO at Columbia Metropolitan Airport will be celebrating its one-year anniversary on June 3. We’re proud of Center Director Joanie Thresher, our staff, volunteers, and all of the Troops who use this facility and hope you’ll join us in wishing them a Happy USO Awareness Month!
