Bagram, Afghanistan - The 69th MP company here on BAF received care packages from the Jacksonville USO. The Unit is in charge of one of the facilities on Bagram that has a satellite USO run completely by Military Volunteers.
The Pat Tillman USO works very closely with the satellite USO, providing Big Screen TVs, gaming systems, DVD players, and many other resources to continue the mission at hand. We here at the Pat Tillman USO along with the 69th MP unit appreciate the generosity of the Jacksonville people, volunteers, and USO for all their support.
P.S. - If someone you know is serving at Bagram, be sure to “like” USO Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan on Facebook!
