Thank you so much. As 2011 drew to a close, you stepped up along with thousands of others just like you to support our troops. Your generous donations and support allowed the USO to bring a touch of home to troops stationed around the world.
Because of the generosity of supporters like you, we were able to lift spirits at the more than 57 forward operating bases and combat outposts near Kandahar where our brave men and women are working hard to protect our freedom. But instead of hearing all the good you provided from me, I wanted to share this special message of thanks direct from the front lines in Afghanistan.
Many of our troops returned from Iraq in 2011, and we are honored by their service. Our commitment to them and their families is ongoing. So is our dedication to the thousands of troops stationed around the world, making incredible sacrifices to protect our freedom.
We couldn’t do all that we are able to do for our troops were it not for you. Thank you for everything you do to support our service men and women and to remind them that they are always at home in our hearts. - Sloan Gibson, USO CEO & President
