As the USO prepares to celebrate the big 7-0 this February 4, we’d like to hear from you! Tell us your fondest memories of your experiences with the USO, include a photo if you’d like, and you may see your name in our magazine - ON★PATROL – or on one of our websites. Be sure to share your story on USO.org by January 24.
Maybe while volunteering you met your current spouse, or perhaps you met Jay Leno when his tour came to your base! We look forward to hearing from you and what you remember about us over the last 70 years.
