You might have read about “Operation Enduring Care” on the blog a couple of weeks ago. This innovative new program is our comprehensive long-term initiative to support America’s Wounded Warriors and their families. It asks every American support our wounded warriors and their families. The goal is to implement an interlocking network of care that extends from the point of injury on the battlefield to their return home to communities across America.
To fund Operation Enduring Care, the USO will raise $100 million over five-years in a campaign expected to be substantially complete by the end of 2011. We’ll keep you posted on all of the updates and highlights as we work together to help those who sacrifice so much move from the battlefield to a full and productive future.
Together, we can make sure this generation of warriors knows their sacrifice is recognized and appreciated.
