About the USO
Throughout our country's history, Americans have felt profound appreciation and gratitude for the dedication and sacrifice of our troops and their families. The USO provides a tangible way for all of us to say "Thank You," as it has done for 70 years.
Thanks to Americans' generosity the USO fulfills its mission of lifting the spirits of America's troops and their families. Through the USO, American citizens can touch the their lives through an extensive range of programs at more than 150 centers in 27 countries, and at hundreds of entertainment events each year.
Thousands of USO volunteers do everything possible to provide a home away from home for the troops and keep them connected to the families they left behind. The USO makes sure the help goes to those who need it the most: troops serving in combat, their families, our wounded warriors and their families, and the families of the fallen.
As a nonprofit, non-political organization, the USO is now, and always will be, about our troops. Wherever and whenever they go, the USO will be there, until every one comes home.
