The USO doesn’t save lives. It doesn’t repair damaged bodies or build prosthetics. What we do is enhance the quality of life for countless active duty military members and their families with offerings that might not otherwise be affordable or available to them. Long deployments take their toll on all military family members. The USO is there - on military bases, in airports, and in every theater in which there is a conflict. Perhaps the best way to gauge the long term impact of our services is this: Every USO employee has multiple stories of being stopped by grateful service people who express their appreciation for a hot cup of coffee, a kind word, a Skype opportunity to witness the birth of a new baby, or a holiday party that takes the edge off the absence of a deployed mom or dad. We need them. They need us. We need you. It’s your community and your USO. And we matter to those who need us most.
