Our team was honored to support the Colorado Army National Guard Special Operations Detachment – Korea (SOD-K) as they were recognized in a Deployment Ceremony. The unit is deploying to the Middle East for approximately one year. USO Denver’s Outreach Volunteers provided soft drinks, bottled water, snacks and cake cutting service for the ceremony’s honorees, their families, and other attendees.
It is always a bittersweet farewell participating in deployment ceremonies, but we are sure to remind our local units that the USO is there for their families here at home, and for their service members downrange at more than 200 locations around the world. Most importantly, we’ll be thinking of them while they’re away and standing by awaiting their safe return from their deployment.
