QUANTICO, Virginia—Victorria Lunceford knows the only constant in military life is change.
But through all her life’s changes — joining and leaving the military, becoming a military spouse, having a sick child and moving around the world — the USO has been there for her and her family in some pretty unexpected ways.
“[The USO] really is like a family,” Victorria said. “It’s comfort. It’s fun. It’s excitement and it’s just there. It’s there for us.”
You can send a message of support and thanks directly to service members via the USO’s Campaign to Connect. Your messages will appear on screens at USO locations around the world.
