Operation Enduring Care
Operation Enduring Care is raising funds to help the wounded, ill and injured troops and their families and caregivers restore lives unraveled by war and do so in the warm and caring context that such sacrifices deserve. A quarter of the funds will go to construct two warrior and family centers -- one at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and one in Fort Belvoir, Va. Another quarter of the funds will endow these centers, making them self-supporting. The other half will underwrite programs to be offered at USO Centers around the world that help these heroes and their families achieve their goal of embracing a promising future.
The USO Warrior and Family Centers will offer a setting of dignity and humanity where the healing that has begun can accelerate. Men and women wrestling with the aftermath of combat will be able to embrace their roles as parents and spouses, enjoying family meals and companionship in a home-like atmosphere. And the centers' business services will make it easier for them to manage the daily business of life, from record-keeping to paying bills. On the difficult haul back toward restoration, these centers and their programs will be important way stations, as well as havens for the spirit.
