FTD is also offering a special USO Collection every month through September. The USO collection will feature a changing selection of special floral arrangements and other gifts. Just go directly to the FTD.com website to find the USO items. FTD will donate 15 percent of the purchase price to the USO.
You can also show your appreciation for our servicemen and women by choosing a gift from the USO Valentine’s Wishbook.
