Sure, Navy won – again! – against Army in this most beloved of football games, but did you notice that guy on the sidelines? You know, USO’s very own CEO and President, Sloan Gibson? Sure, he might have attended West Point, but he has a special message for everybody watching the game!
On Wednesday, November 25, the U.S. Naples Forces Europe Band performed at the US Naval Forces Europe & Africa Thanks for Giving Holiday Concert, in downtown Naples. At the event, Adm. Mark Fitzgerald, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa formally recognized the superb work of USO Naples and it volunteers for outstanding support to the members of the command, and thanked USO for its support of Troops worldwide. About 20 staff and volunteers attended and were seated in VIP seating for the concert, which included a medley of music from the last 68 years in sequence with a USO picture slide show. We heartily congratulate Center Manager Sabrina Pullido and her team. Walter Murren, Vice President, USO Operations (Europe) had this to say: “I could not be more proud of the accomplishments of Sabrina and her team. Clearly such recognition at such an important Italian-American event says volumes about the impact USO programs are having here.” Keep up the great work!
