The 10th day of Wishbook is about keeping families together - even if they’re far apart.
The USO and United Through Reading’s Military Program have forged a partnership that lets deployed troops record themselves reading stories to their children back home. The program then sends a copy of the video back to that service member’s family, often in a package that includes a copy of the book so their kids can follow along.
“[My sons] getting that video in the mail was a big boost for my morale and it let me know that the time I spent recording the books was well spent.” - Navy Lt. j.g. Matthew Stroup
For just a small donation this holiday season, you can help our troops serving in dangerous destinations virtually tuck their kids in at night.
