President’s Message

 

 

My inaugural year with the USO has taught me many things, not the least of which is that for us, there is no “busy” season.  We always strive to serve our military members and their families whenever we are needed, to the best of our capacity.  But during the winter holidays, your USO does some of its most important work, staging holiday events, offering assistance for struggling families, and providing a place of rest and respite for weary military travelers at our airport centers. 

 

When December ends, our work continues, no less important throughout the next 11 months of the year.   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 summer concert that takes the edge off the absence of a deployed parent.  To all of you who serve this great nation, words cannot adequately express our appreciation for your sacrifice.  Serving you is our honor and our privilege.  We send holiday blessings to you and to your families who keep the home fires burning.   

 
Sincerely, 
Paula Moran
 
President and CEO
