Baghdad, Iraq - The USO in Baghdad sponsored a “235th Birthday for the Army Jag” 5K run. For those of you familiar with the terrain, the runners started at Signal Hill on Camp Victory. Over 450 people show up for this early morning weekend run. The USO had T-shirts for all the runners and plaques for the top 3 fastest male and female participants. Congrats to all!
Landstuhl, Germany - On July 30, 2010 the USO Warrior Center hosted an event with Heidelberg Sports and Fitness. A group came down to cook out for the wounded warriors and give away some T-shirts designed especially for the event. Menu choices included ribs, pork steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, bratwurst, baked beans, potato salad, corn on the cob, vegetarian chili, watermelon, and garlic bread. Yummy!
