What Does It Take?

What does it take to keep our service members strong and focused on their mission? It takes a FORCE – a Force Behind the Forces℠.

We are a Force Behind the Forces℠

The USO embodies that force and invites the public to join us on our mission to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.

Every American can join the USO as a Force Behind the Forces℠. Let our service members and their families know that you stand strong behind them as they defend our nation – share a message or give today.
