From the week of 18 - 25 of February the USO Rome was proud to host the winners of the Roman Holiday Giveaway Program!
For one month all US active duty troops stationed in Europe were offered the opportunity to win a one week free vacation in Rome, to include lodging, air port shuttle, 3 tours, and a typical Roman dinner.
The lucky winning family of six from Ramstein Air Base, Germany, the Klawitters, were thrilled with the special opportunity provided by USO Rome, and thoroughly enjoyed a much needed family vacation in the Eternal City.
Sponsors for this incredible initiative were USO Rome vendors, B&B Residenza Risorgimento, Eternity Tours, The Voyager Shuttle Service, and Vito and Dina’s restaurant.
