I’ve never felt so welcome
  • I’ve been traveling for over 20 hours trying to get home. I’ve been trying to make it home for 4 months, haven’t seen my family in over 2 years. When I finally get to come home, my first flight was delayed coming here. When I got here, my next flight got delayed 3 times before being canceled all together. I was furious and just overwhelmed by frustration. Regardless of my off-putting demeanor, the volunteers at the Philadelphia USO approached me, seeing obvious frustration overcoming me. I was greeted with a beverage, a friendly face and a willing ear for me to vent to. I’m extremely thankful for this group of volunteers.
