If the military is going back into Iraq, then so is the USO.

USO services hadn't been requested in the region since the 2011 drawdown. But that changed over the July 4th weekend when – with the help of troops there – the USO stood up an unstaffed location in Baghdad.

The facility was set up in a matter of days and features Internet connectivity, food and beverages, video games and a plethora of creative games and holiday supplies from USO2GO kits to keep troops there entertained.
