Each Veterans Day, America pauses to honor the men and women who worked so tirelessly to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. But while we do that, we also remember tens of thousands who continue to serve around the globe, many in harm’s way.
The USO Wishbook provides donors with meaningful ways to donate to support and connect service members and their families around the world.
If mommy or daddy can’t be home, your donation can give them the next best thing.
Johnson & Johnson can help you share the gift of a bedtime story.
Support a Caregiver
Caregivers are the close family members (or sometimes friends) who tend to our wounded veterans once they return home. The time they spend caring for America’s heroes is a special sacrifice.
Help a caregiver learn how they can best take care of themselves and their loved ones by sending them to a USO Caregivers Conference.
Phone Calls Home
Operation Phone Home delivers pre-paid international phone cards to deployed troops free of charge. The phone cards are distributed through USO Centers overseas and, most often, are delivered directly to military units abroad. As deployments increase and the needs of the military change, the USO has developed a private telephone network (PTN), available in USO Centers throughout Southwest Asia.
Let Johnson & Johnson double your gift of connection to these military families.
Family Fun Day
Walking into a USO center can be like finding an oasis. There, service members and their families can take a break from their stressful duties and just relax or have some fun. You can make a Family Fun Day at a center possible and give a little something back for all their sacrifices.
Send a Military Child to Camp
TAPS Good Grief Camps pair young survivors with active-duty military mentors who can guide these young survivors through their journey of grief. Your donation will help these young survivors cope during their time of need.
