“I was so surprised!” –Lieutenant Junior Grade William Wheatly

U.S. Navy Lieutenant Junior Grade William Wheatly returned from an eight-month deployment aboard the U.S. John C. Stennis stationed in Afghanistan. Mother, Claire Wheatly and sister, Maryellen, who hadn’t seen William in over a year, welcomed him home at the gate with USO of Illinois volunteers.

“You can’t imagine how much this means. Most of our extended family is on the coast so it’s hard to make events like this special without the help of the USO of Illinois. The generosity of the USO volunteers giving their time is so amazing. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.”  -Claire Wheatly, Mother
