Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m guest posting today over at Guide to Military Travel, a great resource website on how to get the most out of your off-duty and leave days! Not only useful for service members, all DoD ID card holders should check it out for discounts, travel tips, and more.
I got talking with Erika (@Military_Travel) on Twitter and I was surprised to hear that she wasn’t aware that she could utilize the services of the USO centers at the airport as a military dependent or DoD ID card holder. I’ve loved and utilized the USO since I first became eligible as a spouse, and continue to use it whether I’m traveling for business or pleasure.
If you’re heading to BMT soon, check out the post! There are USO centers in airports all across the globe! If you have layovers en route to Lackland, they’re a great place to stop in, get a bite to eat [maybe the last junk food you’ll eat for 8.5 weeks!], use the computer/WiFi, etc! My wingman had never been to one when we were traveling down to San Antonio, so I introduced her to the Dallas USO where we enjoyed a piece of pizza and tried to make a dent in a box of Girl Scout cookies.
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
