Today we’re announcing two new exciting changes to the blog. First, our “Letters Back Home” series is moving to Wednesday mornings, from Friday. We will no longer be listing job postings on the blog, but invite you to visit our USO Careers page any time to see what’s available.
Second, we are thrilled to announce a new guest blogger series for Fridays and we’re looking for YOUR contributions! We kicked off the series last Friday with “Peace in the Heart,” the moving story behind Operation Proper Exit III. Anyone with a military-related blog is encouraged to help us build this series with their original blog post. Posts do not necessarily have to relate to the USO, but should relate to our mission of supporting the Troops. Interested? Email us today!
