USO Europe Volunteer of Quarter 2, 2020 - SeanErdrich, USO Incirlik, Rhein Main Area
Sean is an active duty Army MP, currently serving in Incirlik. During that time he has dedicated 381.5 hours to USO Incirlik and has made a great impact in many ways! Sean demonstrates leadership, positive energy, and empathy in all he does. USO Incirlik’s staff has shared many examples of how Sean approaches every outreach opportunity with enthusiasm, whether it’s going on AFN to share his volunteering experience, grilling and cooking for any of our number of meal centric programs, keeping the center open , making it possible to maintain 24-hour operations for our troops, or orienting new volunteers. Sean also supports programs like Brunch 4 Troops, Waffle Wednesdays, Patriot Express, and Cookies, Milk, and a Movie faithfully every week and his support is invaluable. He consistently shows that he’s a #ForceBehindTheForces by taking initiative to help create new promotional materials and by becoming one of our biggest social media promoters. Since transitioning to virtual programming, Sean has helped us test run numerous programs, offered recommendations on how to make improvements, and helped implement our Trivia, Incirlik Connects, and Netflix Watch Party virtual programs. Sean is a service member who selflessly sacrifices his time off duty to better those around him, mentor younger troops, and is always making sure that he leaves environments better than when he arrived. We salute Sean Erdrich for his service to the nation as well as to the USO!
