Here at the USO, our mission is to lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families.   During any holiday, it can be difficult for deployed troops and their families to stay upbeat.  But this Valentine’s Day, we have a way for you to share your love while supporting the troops.

FTD is partnering with the USO to offer a 15 percent discount on flowers, plants and gifts.  FTD will also donate five percent of the purchase price to the USO.  Just go to to place your order.

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 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. New items include: the Pocket-Sized Photo Memories, which gifts a USO Photo Book to troops ($25), a Special Treat of food for troops ($40), a Family Fun Day ($50), Tech to Connect ($75), Love Letters and Pigskins ($100) and Run a Center for a Day($5,000).

Whether buying flowers from for your loved one or shopping through the Valentine’s Day Wishbook, you’re helping support the brave men and women of our armed forces. - Joseph P. Scannell, USO New Media Intern
