Over the last 11 years, USO Europe, United Airlines, CWTSato Travel, USAA and TKS have worked together to send 176 single, junior enlisted service members “Home for the Holidays”. This year, another lucky 16 service members received the great news that their name was pulled from over 1,451 entries - the largest in the giveaway’s history!

This year’s winners will receive a round-trip ticket to the US, courtesy of United Airlines and CWTSato Travel, a $100 gift card from USAA and a Nokia smartphone and EasyTV App from TKS!

As USO staff members called winners to share the news, winners emphatically shared just how much winning this prize package meant to them. One winner plans to visit his family in Honolulu! Another said that “he could not believe he won” and one service member was so tongue tied he could barely remember his address!

Special thanks to the event sponsors, AFN Europe and to all USO Centers in Europe for the collective dedication and support to make the holidays even brighter for our single, junior enlisted service members!
