Spirit of the USO Award recipients
The USO is continuing a time-honored tradition of recognizing the bravery and sacrifice of an enlisted hero from each branch of the military with the USO Service Member of the Year Award. Also being recognized are the USO Volunteer of the Year and the Spirit of the USO recipients.
For more than 70 years, the USO has been lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families. An estimated 1100 guests will gather to pay special tribute to our men and women in uniform. Guests will include Washington dignitaries, celebrities, Members of Congress, military leadership, members of the USO Board of Governors and USO Corporate sponsors.
The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, not a government agency. All of our programs and services are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
