USO coming to Columbus

Beginning this June, the USO will have a local office in Columbus.

Michael A. Watson, chairman of the USO Council of Georgia, was in Columbus today to talk about plans for the new facility.

Watson said they will have two side-by-side suites in the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, now under construction at 3662 Victory Drive in Columbus. The hotel is scheduled to open in June of 2008 and Watson said they are planning a big celebration for June 14th.
