“Always By Their Side” is not a slogan. It’s our way of life.
When it comes to America’s troops, USO staffers and volunteers are always by their side. We’re with them at home and on deployment halfway around the world. We provide wounded, ill and injured troops the tools to create brighter futures for themselves. We comfort and care for families of the fallen in transit. We provide a home away from home for military families at 160-plus centers worldwide, including the new USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Va.
The USO’s 2012 annual report, titled “Always By Their Side,” tells the stories of how the USO has been there for America’s troops in the last year. Flip through it today at uso.org/alwaysbytheirside.
