A USO contingent is in Darwin, Australia, this week to meet with troops from Marine Rotational Force – Darwin about how the organization can improve the organization’s setup there. The USO recently established a day room with gaming systems, TVs, Internet access and free snacks just steps away from the Marines’ barracks.
“We really like having the Internet. Everyone uses it,” Lance Cpl. Derrick Wastart told DVIDS. “We’re really thankful for it, especially because it’s one of our only means of communication to our families. We really appreciate it.”
Darwin, on the northern coast of Australia, is seen as a strategic U.S. training location in the Pacific.
