Fundraise for the USO today
About the USO
The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
Our Global Impact
12.7M Connections Worldwide
When service members return from deployment, gaming is a fun, easily accessible tool for reconnecting and strengthening bonds with family. Also, gaming provides an opportunity to improve connections between the military, their families, and civilians and share experiences with others, providing a shared space to communicate and relieve stress through escapism. The Department of Veterans Affairs research shows that video games are an important tool for service members and veterans to overcome post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other invisible wounds.
