About the USO
For 73 years, the USO has taken on the task of caring for our nation’s wounded heroes, supporting families of the fallen, and helping our service members transition back into civilian life. They are a privately funded organization that provides individualized support to wounded troops every day.
A decade of war has left more than 405,522 troops wounded, disabled or killed. The USO depends on the generosity of donors to make their mission possible. Proceeds make an impact both locally, and around the world—helping a child cope with their parent not being at home, connecting a new wife to her husband, or helping a family navigate through to their “new normal” helping their son or daughter heal with honor. The USO’s programs continue to change and grow as the daily lives of our troops change.
