    USA/the USA

    Hi everyone,

    I remember that with USA we use "the". But what about this sentence that I came across?

    "He was born in Montana, USA."


    Thank you.

    That's fine.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
