Soldiers traveling through Raleigh-Durham International Airport have a chance to relax before continuing to their final destination.
The USO is bracing for one of the biggest travel days of the season as people complete their Thanksgiving travel. That means keeping the kitchen area stuffed with hot dogs, sandwiches and Brunswick stew for the more than 200 military personnel expected to pass through RDU.
The USO center on the second floor of Terminal A at RDU normally sees 65 visitors a day. On the day before Thanksgiving, it received 265 visitors.
At the USO center, servicemen and servicewomen can get a meal, watch television, surf the Internet, play video games or just crash on a comfy recliner. Many are heading to or from Camp Lejeune, Fort Bragg and other nearby military bases.
