Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all of the military families who came out to join us for the Sesame Street/USO Experience this year!  From April to September, from North Carolina to North Dakota, this tour extended its run as the longest-running entertainment tour in USO history.  We couldn’t do it without the support of Sesame Workshop and VEE Corporation, and all of you who attend the performances.  Some fun facts from Phase IV:

  • 43 Bases visited
  • 139 Shows performed
  • 15,700 Miles traveled
  • 552,956 Giveaways received
  • 72,054 Service members and families attended

Altogether – since the beginning of Phase I on July 8, 2008 – the tour has visited 90 bases; performed 315 shows; traveled through 9 countries; logged 61,242 miles; given away 1,455,029 goodies; and entertained 192,650 service members and their families – way to go!

  1. I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer to work at the Sesame Street shows when it came to Ft.Carson. It was great to see a lot of happy faces, (young and old!). The USO has allowed me to be a part of some very special events this past few months, and it has been wonderful. I wish I could spend more time volunteering…maybe when I retire from my real job!! Thanks USO for all that you do for soldiers and their families!
