Since her very first USO tour, USO has been proud to count Elizabeth Banks as a supporter. In December 2015, she traveled with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as other entertainers like Chris Daughtry and David Wain to help bring the holidays to service members in Italy, Djibouti, Afghanistan, Bahrain and Germany.

Thanks to her experience on tour, USO was proudly partnered with Universal Pictures in 2017 to host service members at the “Pitch Perfect 3” premiere in Los Angeles, deliver a special USO tour to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, along with an exclusive screening for troops in Georgia. USO centers all over the world celebrated in anticipation of the film’s release. “Participating in a USO tour is such a unique honor, and my experience was so inspiring that I wanted it to be part of the next ‘Pitch Perfect’ movie,” Banks said.
