Thanks for being there for my son when I couldn’t be.
There are countless ways volunteers support the USO, but they all share an abiding dedication to our service members and their families. Whether it’s helping out at a special event, cheering troops at homecoming, manning a front desk or providing a listening ear, our volunteers are the reason service members know they can count on the USO.
Interested in becoming a USO volunteer? Visit https://volunteers.uso.org/ to submit a volunteer interest form.
For those who aren’t able to volunteer their time, there are many other ways to get involved and support the USO. Click “Take Action” on the drop-down menu above to learn about other options, including making a monetary contribution, using our easy fundraising toolkits, joining Team USO and more.
We received a note from a mom who thanked us for a story her son told her. He was flying home exhausted after a long, stressful tour. The airport volunteer gave him something to eat, pointed him to a recliner and told him to get some rest. The soldier drifted into a much-needed nap, stirring briefly as the USO volunteer draped a warm blanket over him. Later, she gently touched his shoulder to wake him so he wouldn’t miss his flight.
It meant a great deal to that soldier. But it meant the world to his mom who wrote, “Thanks for being there for my son when I couldn’t be.”
