Hundreds of thousands of our troops will spend Thanksgiving and the holidays away from home and loved ones. At this time of year, it’s especially important to show our support for them.
Last year, thousands of people like you stepped forward to show our troops the support they have at home by sending messages of thanks on our Thanks From Everywhere map.
Right away, we started hearing from service men and women around the world. They wanted the USO’s supporters to know how much it meant to receive messages from their home towns and from all across the country.
This year, we’re partnering with the White House’s Joining Forces initiative to send even more words of hope, encouragement and support. We need your help to make it happen. Each message means so much to our troops, so please show them you care!
Add your personal message to our “Thanks From Everywhere” map, so our troops can feel your support no matter where they are. Your note of encouragement can reach our troops and touch their hearts wherever they are. They’ll be able to walk into any USO center and view messages of thanks from their hometown.
The debt you and I owe our troops is one we can never repay, but their selfless service can’t go unrecognized. And right now, you have the chance to show them your gratitude in a deeply meaningful way.
Together, we can make sure our Thanks From Everywhere map is covered with heartfelt messages before the holidays begin. We’ll let the troops know that while they’re out on the front lines fighting for us, the entire country is standing with them.
