Hyten (11th Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) and SEAC Ramon “CZ” Colon-Lopez (Senior Enlisted Advisor of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff).

“The USO is an amazing organization and we want to thank them for taking us overseas and straight into the daily lives of our United States service members,” said Preston Brust (of LOCASH). “Thanks to the USO, we were able to bring a little piece of home to the men and women in our military who train, work hard, fight and protect our freedoms. Chris and I were humbled to be able to speak on behalf of our entire country and say ‘THANK YOU’ to them in person!”
