Grant a Wish for Our Heroes

Grant a Wish for Our Heroes

Grant a Wish for Our Heroes is our observance of Veterans Day and serves as a way for Americans to show appreciation for the exemplary service given by our nation's servicemen and women.

Over the next month, we will highlight how the USO lifts the spirits of troops and their families by providing morale boosts in many ways. Whether it is keeping deployed servicemen and women connected to their families or making a troop's time in theater a little more comfortable or supporting returning wounded, ill and injured troops as they work to recover, the USO remains steadfast in delivering goodness to our nation's military and its families.
