Deployed Soldiers In Iraq Surprised With USO Care Packages, Games and Treats
When a soldier in Erbil, Iraq, stopped by the USO and asked if the USO could provide his Army unit with much-needed toiletries in less than 48 hours, the USO team on the ground sprang into action and delivered for troops outside the wire.
Real stories from real people
"50 years ago I arrived at Memphis, Tenn., for assignment. People stationed there told me to visit the USO, especially since it was Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The USO had a program that local families would take military people into their homes for the holidays. We've since continued the tradition by inviting fellow Marines into our home for the holidays. I thank the USO for their support! " - W. Harmon, Retired Marine
"The chef at the USO insisted that he make me breakfast and proceeded to make me a pancake the size of a frisbee with fresh scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. It was the best experience and best USO ever. Thank you all for making this soldier proud to serve." - T. Hundley, Active-Duty Soldier
"My wife and I recently visited Dubai with the help of the USO. Due to an airline glitch, my wife's reservation was canceled, stranding her in Dubai. I contacted the USO and they immediately contacted my wife and found her lodging and then checked in with her. Their actions were above and beyond and brought peace to a stressful moment. Thank you to the USO organization for being there when we needed you! " - F. Arnold, Active-Duty Sailor
