USO Okinawa Staff Highlight: Henry Hughes
Tell Us About Them:
Henry was born in Philadelphia and raised in New Jersey. Henry is a big believer of “Quality over Quantity”. He places a high value on loyalty and friendships are important to him. He still maintains a solid relationship with the same four friends from his elementary school. Any day he doesn’t laugh at least once is a bad day and he has few of them. He enjoys listening to other people’s views and opinions and learning from them. He believes there is something to learn (good or bad) from everyone he meets. He’s lived in Japan for over 16 years. Because of what he’s learned from the good people of Japan and their culture, he believes that humility and respect are essential things in life. He is passionate about his family, photography, and watching or playing sports. He really loves basketball and supports all his home teams (Phillies, Eagles, etc.).
As the Area Operations Manager, Henry is involved in almost every aspect of USO Okinawa. He coordinates the clear majority of the logistics behind all of our major programming. He helps centers with programs as well and is one of two licensed drivers for the truck and USO Okinawa Mobile. Thanks for all you do Henry!
