USO Military Village Draws a Crowd at Warrior Open in Texas

It was smiles, cheese steaks and a little bit of sweat under a bright blue Texas sky Monday as the USO opened its Military Village at The Bush Center’s Warrior Open just outside Dallas.

Trucks and tents lined the Las Colinas Country Club parking lot about 1,000 feet from the first tee, serving up both breakfast and a bevy of lunch options to military personnel and their families from around the region. Guests were treated to a 7-Eleven Slurpee station, an assortment of Blue Bunny ice cream, cheesesteaks from the All-American Beef Battalion and more delicious offerings from several other Texas establishments. All USO Military Village vendors donated both their time and food.

USO contingents from both Fort Hood and San Antonio made the trip up to Irving, Texas—just outside Dallas—brining troops with them and drawing veterans from around the region to watch 22 servicemen injured in the line of duty test their skills in a two-day golf tournament. – Eric Brandner, USO Director of Story Development
