Operation Family Furlough: Deserving military families receive surprise vacations
During April, also known as the Month of the Military Child, the USO of North Carolina, Frontier Airlines, and Exploria Resorts teamed up to surprise three deserving military families with one-week vacations.
The service members were surprised April 26 at a special Operation Family Furlough event at the USO of North Carolina RDU Center located within the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
The selected families were chosen by their military leadership and have recently been deployed. One just returned home from the middle-east.
The prize trips include: Airfare for the family, one week complimentary stay at Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts, Sea World, Aquatica Waterpark and Discovery Cove tickets, meal vouchers and more.
Our teams were thrilled to be a part of this opportunity to honor our nation’s littlest heroes.
