New USO Neil Ash Airport Center opens


The thousands of military service members and their families who pass through San Diego International Airport every year now have a new place to call their “home away from home.” USO San Diego, in partnership with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, recently opened the doors of the new USO Neil Ash Airport Center — the largest USO airport center in the world.

The grand opening and ribbon cutting took place June 26 in the new facility in Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport. The facility spans nearly 10,000 square feet.

The center is named in honor of Neil Ash, a longtime Rancho Santa Fe resident and dedicated supporter of San Diego’s military community.
