The Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club recently presented a check for $1,000 to the USO at Northwest Florida Regional Airport.



The USO maintains the Freedom Lounge at the airport. The goal of the USO is to lift the spirits of service members and their families, wherever they serve, until everyone comes home.
