We knew our USO family was the best! Last week we told you how Billy Ray Cyrus showed his support for Operation Phone Home, and how YOU could show support, too. We challenged you to help provide 100,000 call for troops to their loves ones before July 31, and…
Guess what? We blew right past our goal! We heard your response loud and clear, so we’re upping our goal to 250,000 calls for Troops and the deadline of July 31 is fast approaching!
When you donate $15 today, you will provide our brave men and women with 45 calls home. That’s three calls for every dollar donated! We couldn’t do what we do without your support. Know that we’ll be there providing free phones calls and all of the other great programs and services you’ll find at the USO…Until Every One Comes Home.
