The Academy of Country Music Awards are this weekend – and, while country has America’s special attention, it seems like a perfect time to do something special for our troops! Country stars like Toby Keith, Montgomery Gentry and more are participating in USO’s Country Comes Together campaign - an all-out drive to provide our troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other outposts with thousands of USO care packages.
Join in as Country Comes Together for our troops. By donating now, you can be part of a dramatic display of support that will deliver much-needed items and a touch of home to the brave men and women who are putting it all on the line for America.
