Benson Memorial Members Assist USO and marines

On Tuesday, December 10, members of Benson Memorial (organized by the men’s fellowship group) went out to RDU Airport to assist the U.S.O. in a wonderful event called “Marine Tuesday.” After graduating boot camp, a group of Marines comes through RDU Airport each Tuesday on their way to their assignments.

 

As volunteers, we assist them in getting their bags labeled, checked in for their flight, handing out snacks, and just casually conversing with them. These young Marines are always very appreciative of the help. This is a wonderful mission Benson Memorial has been helping with on a quarterly basis for five years in a row now!
