Saying goodbye is never easy, but USO O'Hare staff and volunteers know how to make a welcome home special. USO Welcome Home Brigade provides military dependents the opportunity to meet their service member returning home from deployment at the arrival gate. In April, USO Welcome Home Brigade volunteers helped facilitate a heartfelt welcome home for 15 sailors from Naval Station Great Lakes returning from a deployment in South America. Hugs, tears and joy were shared by all as the sailors reunited with their loved ones. In total, USO Welcome Home Brigade volunteers have helped reunite 17 families with their loved ones in 2018, including two Naval Corpsmen returning home from a deployment in Bahrain.
