A USO Birthday Wish

As the USO prepares to celebrate the big 7-0 this February 4, we’d like to hear from you! Tell us your fondest memories of your experiences with the USO, include a photo if you’d like, and you may see your name in our magazine – ON★PATROL – or on one of our websites. Be sure to share your story on USO.org by January 24.

Maybe while volunteering you met your current spouse, or perhaps you met Jay Leno when his tour came to your base! We look forward to hearing from you and what you remember about us over the last 70 years.

  1. As much as we appreciate the long standing efforts of the USO, please remove that horribly insensitive tv commercial and credo the USO has been using. The one that says…”until everyone comes home”. There is no ‘everyone coming home’. That commercial would be wrenching and trigger many emotions to anyone who’s lost a loved one in the military. What would compel anyone to script transparently hurtful tv ads like that? Don’t believe me? Ask anyone who’s lost a loved one what they think. I am going to forward this to the mainstream media, the VA and other agencies so that hopefully, that awful tv commercial be removed immediately. I cringe every time I see that.
