Mayor Kasim Reed, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials, and USO dignitaries will cut the ribbon on the airport’s renovated USO facility at a ceremony Tuesday morning. 

Just over a year ago, Mayor Reed and Aviation General Manager Miguel Southwell vowed to create a facility for members of the U.S. Armed Forces that would rival airline clubs located throughout the airport.

In a celebration marking the renovation, Mayor Reed and Miguel Southwell will be joined by USO staffers and volunteers along with members of the military. Media are invited to record the ceremony and then tour the upgraded hospitality location.

Thế giới cá The upgrades to the 32-hundred square-foot facility include a food and beverage hospitality suite, a Skype-only dedicated computer for video conferencing, ample electrical outlets, and furniture upgrades on par with airline clubs throughout the airport.
