Our anniversary is right around the corner: we ’ll be 69 on February 4th! And to help celebrate, we’re asking for YOUR USO stories.
Have a recollection about an entertainment tour that changed you life? A picture from your favorite USO Center? Or the story about how you met your future spouse at a USO dance? We’d love to hear them all.
It’s simple: send an email of your USO story to email@example.com and include any attachments. We’ll publish some of our favorites all throughout our birthday week on this blog and the On Patrol Blog.
Happy (almost) Birthday to us and we can’t wait to hear from YOU!
