On September 11, 2021, USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia (USO HRCV) teamed up with Fox Richmond - WRLH and Richmond Area Toyota Dealers to treat their very own, Ramon Bernal and family, with a VIP NASCAR Race Day Experience at the Richmond Raceway. The day included an exclusive tour of the track, garages, and a surprise video message from their mother, Navy Petty Officer First Class Elizabeth Bernal, who is currently deployed overseas.
Ramon is retired military himself, and currently serves as the Center Operations Supervisor for USO Naval Station Norfolk and USO AMC Terminal at Naval Station Norfolk.
Richmond Area Toyota Dealers also surprised Team USO HRCV with an incredible gift - a new Sienna van which will play an integral part in Mission Delivery, event logistics, and command support.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for your service to our country, and Ramon, for your dedication to the USO mission. Finally, thank you to Fox News Richmond and Richmond Area Toyota Dealers for Being a Force Behind the Forces!
