The USO Northwest’s new SeaTac Center will be receiving historical flooring – the teak decking of the battleship USS Colorado (BB-45, pictured above)!
Donated by Boeing, the flooring will arrive at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport next week. A reception for the decking – with crew members of the USS Colorado – will be held on Friday, Feb. 7 at 9:30 a.m.
The teak decking will arrive at 9:40 a.m. at the airport’s atrium on the south end and be welcomed by USS Colorado crewmembers, Patriot Guard, Port of Seattle volunteers, USO Northwest volunteers, staff and board, as it is escorted to the Center’s construction site.
“Please stay for the cake and punch following the arrival,” reads an announcement.
