We had the privilege of honoring LeAnn Thornton who was named USO Volunteer of the Year for the Continental U.S. Region. She was selected out of 29,000 other nominated volunteers from all over the U.S. She is a full time civilian employee with the Hillsborough Police Department; she primarily focuses her attention to the Families of the Fallen and to Welcome Home programs for veterans but she also provides operational support to the USO center at the San Francisco International Airport and recruits and trains volunteers. She does whatever it takes to ensure that the men and women in uniform and their families have what they need to be comfortable and travel successfully through SFO.
