EVENTS & STORIES
Entertainment Is Our Tradition
While the entertainment industry has changed a lot over the years, a few things have not. Today's service men and women still long for family, home and country, and they are still delighted and inspired when their personal heroes volunteer their time, voice and reach to work with USO and engage with service members and their families. Support from their favorite entertainers strengthens service members and their families by keeping them connected to the people, places and things they love.
