Day 11 of Wishbook is for a much-needed break.
Our wounded warriors spend their days going through grueling rehab, inside doctor’s offices and navigating red tape associated with their recovery. The USO was there for them when they were at war, and we’re there for them when they’re back home recovering, too. USO outings for wounded troops - whether they’re small trips to dinner or the Salute to Service in Las Vegas (seen above) - are great ways to boost morale, build camaraderie and provide a break from the grind of recovery.
You can give these troops who’ve sacrificed so much for our country the break they need this holiday season with just a few clicks.
