USO Naples Volunteer of the Quarter, Spring 2018: Larissa Yuncker

The USO Naples is thrilled to recognize LS2 Larissa Yuncker as its Volunteer of the Quarter. This nomination highlights Larissa’s unwavering dedication to the NSA Naples community through her volunteer efforts with the USO Naples. Since becoming a registered USO Volunteer, Larissa has been willing to fill any role that has been presented to her; However, her primary focus has been the USO Naples’ “Cup of Joe with the USO” initiative which is held every Wednesday at 0630 outside of the NSA Naples Capodichino Air Terminal. Additionally, she supports the USO Naples at events such as the monthly “Taste of Home,” Game Night, and Volunteer Committee meetings.

Larissa’s smiling face and enthusiasm for “Cup of Joe with the USO” impacts every person who drives by the coffee stand, whether they actually stop for a cup of coffee or not. She has provided her team members with steady, consistent and quality leadership which has empowered and inspired her team members.

Larissa’s adventurous spirit and dedication has led to her earning leadership roles within the USO Naples organization, being featured on AFN Naples radio and curating a cache of goodwill within this community. She is an excellent example of a “citizen-sailor” who truly cares about the quality of life at NSA Naples and works hard to improve it.

The USO Naples family is honored to serve the NSA Naples community and grateful for the opportunity to work with volunteers as selfless, energetic, and dedicated as Larissa.
