About the USO

For more than 70 years, the USO has been the way for the American people USO_005-300x199 to say thank you to our nation’s service men and women and their families.

The USO (United Service Organizations) lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families millions of times each year at hundreds of places worldwide, by providing a touch of home through centers at airports and military bases in the U.S. and abroad, top quality entertainment, and innovative programs and services. The organization also supports those who need the USO most, including forward-deployed troops, military families, wounded warriors and their families, and the families of the fallen.

The USO, a private nonprofit organization, could not do what it does without the generosity of individuals and corporations.
