Grand opening at USO

A group of dignitaries cut a ribbon to celebrate the opening of the USO Lounge at Youngstown Air Reserve Station (YARS) during a ceremony here, April 11, 2015. From left are 910th Airlift Wing Commander Col. James Dignan, YARS USO Support Office Director Mr. Bruce Bille, USO of Northern Ohio Board of Directors Vice President Ralph Burr, Youngstown State University President James Tressel and 910th Airlift Wing Command Chief Master Sgt. Steven Larwood. The lounge, the first to open and operate on an Air Reserve Station in the continental United States, was created to support YARS Servicemembers who, for personal, financial, medical or religious reasons, wanted an alcohol-free alternative to the installation’s all services club.
