USO Guam Delivers Holiday Cheer and Morale Boosting Meal to 70+ Military On Remote Pacific Island
Your USO Pacific team delivered a much needed hot meal to Seabees assisting in the recovery from Category 5 Typhoon Yutu that devastated the island of Tinian and its neighbor Saipan on 10/25/2018.
Living in tents for nearly two months in extreme weather conditions on Tinian with only packaged Meals-Ready-To-Eat (MREs) and very limited hot meals, these service members were happy to see the baby back ribs, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and more arrive from USO via airlift this week. USO Guam Area Programs Manager Ed Lebita and USO Tumon Bay staff Kenji Oku delivered the goodness along with pumpkin bars and cupcakes, and 5 additional mobile wi-fis to connect everyone with home and family.
Special thanks to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 1 (NMCB1) - The First and The Finest who originally deployed to Guam from Gulfport, Mississippi and to all military personnel involved in this effort! Thank you to our friends at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Saipan, Triple J Auto Group, Coca-Cola/Powerade Guam and Saipan, and Herman’s Modern Bakery Saipan for their tremendous support.
