Comfort Crew for Military Kids
The USO partners with the Comfort Crew for Military Kids to send interactive and engaging motivational speakers on tour to promote self-confidence and resiliency in military children ages 6 to 15 years old. Military families tell us about the power and impact the tour has in helping military children tackle topics such as: bullying at school, adjusting to life during and post-deployment, and coping when a parent makes the ultimate sacrifice. Using innovative, inspiring and humorous stories, the Comfort Crew has spoken with thousands of children about the difficulties military kids face. The Comfort Crew embarks on a multi-city With You All the Way! tour providing presentations to military children living throughout the U.S and overseas.
In 2016, the USO will host the With You All the Way! tour at more than 50 locations and provide 200 opportunities for military kids to engage with the Comfort Crew team. The program has expanded its reach as a founding member of the USO Transition 360 Alliance.
