Mayor Kasim Reed recently unveiled a newly renovated USO facility to honor military members’ service and provide leisure activities.
Reed was joined by Miguel Southwell, Aviation General Manager Mary Lou Austin, and CEO USO Georgia Glen Welling, Vice President, Operation USO, Inc.
Reed, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials, and USO dignitaries cut the ribbon on the airport’s renovated USO facility at a ceremony Tuesday, July 14.
Just over a year ago, Mayor Reed and Aviation General Manager MiguelSouthwell vowed to create a facility for members of the U.S. Armed Forces that would rival airline clubs located throughout the airport.
In a celebration marking the renovation, Mayor Reed and Miguel Southwell will be joined by USO staffers and volunteers along with members of the military. The upgrades to the 32-hundred square-foot facility include a food and beverage hospitality suite, a Skype-only dedicated computer for video conferencing, ample electrical outlets and furniture upgrades on par with airline clubs throughout the airport.
The USO is located on Center 3rd Floor Atrium – Domestic Terminal Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, 6000 North Terminal Parkway.
