On Friday, October 28, LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry returned to visit The United Service Organization (U.S.O.) at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, to provide comfort and support to those active military service members being deployed.
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Blitz (LCC Squad) and his veteran handler Bob spent time with service members from all branches traveling to different parts of the country and overseas.
One was returning to Italy from being on emergency leave, and another was traveling to Poland with his unit.
Blitz and veteran Bob brought a lot of comfort to our service men and women.
The United Service Organization (U.S.O.) offers a variety of services to active military personnel and their dependents, including free refreshments, information and referrals at O'Hare International Airport. The center provides men, women and families of the Armed Forces with a place to relax, enjoy a meal, check email and phone home before being deployed or just after traveling from overseas.
The USO at O'Hare has proudly provided programs, services, care and comfort to troops and their families since 1969.
