Local USO branch looking for volunteers

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A local branch of a national nonprofit is looking for volunteers to help service members coming to our area.

La Crosse's United Service Organizations, or USO, is hoping to gain about 40 volunteers.

Volunteers help service members by staffing the USO lounge at the La Crosse Airport and providing insight into the La Crosse area.

"A volunteer would have to be someone who is patriotic, is welcoming and open, a happy person, kind of laid-back and easy-going. But somebody who really understands how important a cup of coffee and a granola bar is to our soldiers,” said USO Wisconsin Operations Director Elizabeth Hazlett.

USO officials say some volunteers would also be able to help in training missions at Fort McCoy.
