Give More Than Thanks
To keep service members connected to everything they joined the Armed Forces to defend - family, home and country.
Together we can give more than thanks
At the USO, we believe that all Americans, united in spirit and action, can change the lives and communities of our military – and, thus, our country – for the better.
Join the USO as a Force Behind the Forces® to actively express gratitude and support members of the military and their families, at home and abroad.
With your help, we can bring a little bit of home to our men and women in uniform. With your help, we can go where they go to be by their side. With your help, we can give more than thanks.
Make the pledge today to give more than thanks and see below for ways to support.
