We look forward to visiting America's sons and daughters who keep our nation safe and showing them that they will always have the support of those they serve."

About the USO
The USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and their families millions of times each year at hundreds of places worldwide.

We also provide critical support to those who need us most, including forward-deployed troops, military families, wounded warriors, troops in transition and families of the fallen. The USO is a private, non-profit organization, not a government agency. Our programs and services are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
