Armed Services Day

Got an email from my favorite service organization the other day — the USO. They are taking part in the Durham Bulls Armed Services Day this Friday, May 15. A good deal for anyone you know who is serving or who is retired from the military. I quote from an email from Jon Bishop of the Bulls,
“All active and retired military can receive a complimentary admission, courtesy of Bank of America, by showing an ID at the Durham Bulls Box Office.”

Sounds like a good deal.

Caused me a bit of a problem though. The USO is going to have a table at the game and they were looking for volunteers. Fortunately for me I procrastinated long enough that all the slots were filled up. So I can watch the game and go by the table and cheer on the volunteers. What could be better?

For those who don’t know much about the USO here’s their website. They run a center out at the airport that provides a place for our troops and their families to take a break while waiting for a plane or waiting for a ride. Terrific organization that does a wonderful job for our troops.
