I need your help in a critical mission: equipping and supplying our USO Warrior and Family Center at Walter Reed Military Medical Center that’s currently under construction.
The brave troops who will use this wonderful, new center sacrificed so much for our country. We need to make sure they have everything they need to live comfortably during their recovery.
We only have until July 4th to raise the funds needed to bring this 16,217-square-foot center to life. I know we can get there but we need you to step up and lead today.
Thousands of our young men and women are returning from war wounded, ill or injured, and you and the USO are there to comfort them from the moment they’re rushed to a field hospital and through every step of recovery as they prepare for the future.
For our wounded, their families and caregivers, our new center will be a place of healing and recuperation. It will offer every comfort they need, from comforting rest areas and recreation rooms to education centers designed specifically to be springboards to get our troops back to a full and rewarding life, which will help them face the challenges of recovery.
But as you can imagine, it takes a lot to get a state-of-the-art facility of this magnitude up and running. That’s why your participation in our “At One With The Wounded” campaign is absolutely vital.
Our wounded troops have laid it all on the line for our country. With July 4th fast approaching, I’m hoping you will show your respect for their sacrifices by making a matching gift to this very special effort.
- General Richard B. Myers, USAF (Ret.), Chairman of the Board, USO
