Tom Rowan is a USO O’Hare Terminal 2 Volunteer. Tom can always be found on the midnight shift at the center and is one of the reasons why USO O’Hare is able to stay open 24/7 to meet the needs of our traveling military and their family. Mary Anne Sprague, Tom’s daughter, noticed the wear and tear on the center’s reclining chairs, which were last replaced in 2012. In 2019, USO O’Hare Terminal 2 saw over 75,000 visitors. In honor of her father, Mary Anne has donated 13 new recliners to help keep our military and their families comfortable during their travels.
Thank you, Tom and Mary Anne, for your dedication to the USO of Illinois and our mission.
