The Community Strong event at Ford Hood last Friday was a smashing success. We’d like to thank everyone who came out to support the men, women, and children of Fort Hood on a day of remembrance and celebration. The effervescent spirit of this community cannot be denied!
We are especially proud of our own USO employees and volunteers from the Killeen, TX, area. As the Killeen Daily Herald so eloquently put it, “…on Friday, the community that so recently joined together in mourning now came together in celebration of life and a bright future. The show of support and kindness particularly from those wearing the very recognizable USO logo was nearly overwhelming." And we couldn’t have done it without your support!
It’s not too late to leave a message for at the usocommunitystrong.org website. And your donations will continue to support those most in need in the Fort Hood Community. Again, a TREMENDOUS thank you goes out to all the celebrity entertainers, participants, attendees, and behind-the-scenes movers and shakers who make Friday such an overwhelming success. Fort Hood is and will continue to be "Community Strong”![gallery columns=“2”]
