The mission: raise $300,000 in the next 11 days to care for troops who have been wounded on the field of battle. Our most immediate priority includes supplying and operating one of the first stops of the recovery process for our injured troops, the new USO Warrior Recovery Center in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
The USO is the right organization to support our wounded troops from the field of battle and throughout their recovery. That’s why you and the USO are in a good place to step forward and help. If we receive your donation of $10 by May 4, it will be matched dollar for dollar up to the $150,000 matching fund limit by a generous and committed donor – doubling your impact for our wounded troops.
With your help, we can maintain the USO’s track record of being there for wounded, ill and injured troops every step of the way – from immediate triage, to the first point of evacuation, to sustained support on the road to recovery.
The USO is on the ground in Afghanistan and at supporting military medical facilities at Ramstein Air Base and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, where the USO provides a full range of services to our wounded, ill and injured troops, their families and caregivers.
Our commitment to our wounded, ill and injured troops must be as unyielding as their commitment to our country.
We only have a short time to reach our $300,000 goal. Please fulfill your role in this mission as quickly and as generously as possible.
Sincerely, General Richard B. Myers, USAF (Ret.) Chairman of the Board, USO
Update: We reached our goal and our generous supporter has raised their matching limit to $200,000! Can we reach $400,000 for our wounded troops?
