Lifting American Troops Spirits

The United Service Organizations (USO) was officially formed in 1941, upon the entry into WWII after Pearl Harbor. This non-profit and non-government organization is dedicated to lifting American troops morale by providing entertainment, emotional support and providing programs assisting troops and their families. Letting troops and their families know that we do care and support them is very important. For many, it is the home away from home. The USO will continue to be there for them "until every one comes home."

Ways to volunteer and activities for children!

I found this testimonial very endearing:

"First I want to tell you how much this raised our morale. I overheard a few people saying it felt like Christmas all over again." – Jolly Rogers 103 Line Division, to Operation USO Care Package

 Thank you to our troops for all that you do and thank you to all involved with the USO for all that you provide to the troops!
