Southwest Asia, the Mediterranean, the Pacific – you name it, Robert Irvine has been there in support of service members and their families. Whether the celebrity chef and TV host is meeting and greeting or performing a cooking demonstration for troops, USO is proud to count Chef Irvine as a strong supporter. “Random acts of kindness by volunteers for service men and their families – that’s something special,” recounted Irvine during his last tour.

Robert Irvine and his wife, Gail Kim-Irvine, traveled with the USO and other entertainers on the 2017 Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff USO Holiday Tour.

Most recently, Irvine joined the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other entertainers on a special USO tour around the globe. In total, the group entertained over 3,000 servicemen and women in Japan, South Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq and Spain.
