USO Japan Volunteer of the Year: Hideo Furuhashi, USO Yokota

Furuhashi has worked with the USO for over 40 years. His smile and readiness to support others are contagious. Furuhashi began volunteering at the USO PAX Terminal over 30 years ago, maintaining the USO lounge and spending time with families while they waited for flights. He’s has also assisted the USO during many special events and built and donated an ice cream booth for the USO’s monthly Ice Cream Socials. Furuhashi’s strong working relationships with the local Japanese community and Yokota Air Base has forged an unbreakable bond between the USO Yokota office and Japanese nationals.
