Veteran’s Day and the USO

Veteran’s Day is when we honor those serving our nation. Today, I made a donation to the USO. We still have thousands of active-duty service members serving in conflict zones (notably Iraq and Afghanistan), not to mention hundreds of thousand posted overseas. The USO gives them moments of escapism, bringing them a entertainment, arts and culture. The big-name acts who make visits overseas are important – but so, too, are the USO centers, where service members can connect with families back home, watch a movie or play a video game, or just relax for a moment.
