It turns out having a USO at PDX is awesome because now everyone at PDX airport is offering a military discount now! I hope they continue to do so.

Portland International Airport better known as PDX in Portland, Oregon is offering special military discounts for military members and their families and almost everyone at the airport is participating. How sweet is that! Hopefully when the Country Cat opens they will offer a discount too. I am kicking myself for not asking the last time I ate at Laurelwood Brewery.
