Last year, Sesame Workshop and the USO teamed up to present “The Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families” – a free traveling USO tour featuring five of America’s favorite Muppets. This year the tour has travelled to six countries and twenty military installations, most recently to Hawaii.

Have you and your family attended a Sesame Street/USO Experience? Did you take pictures, write a blog, or would you like to share your story? Has the tour not visited your town yet, but should? Leave a comment and let us you what you think!
