Your Impact

When you support the USO, you ensure that our mission is carried out in the following key areas:


Together, we help nurture and maintain a strong bond between service members, their families and the community. Through programs focused on connection, strengthening, wellness and resiliency, we express America’s gratitude and commitment to service members and their families.

No matter where they are, no matter for how long, the USO is there for the service men and women of America.


Your support helps us bring entertainment, recreation, and celebrations to the doorsteps of service members and their families through a diverse range of activities. By providing programs that focus on America’s culture and pastimes, we bring a grateful nation closer to them in times of both separation and celebration.

The USO delivers support to service members stationed abroad, training in isolated locations, on arduous missions and those deployed to remote areas around the world. And we could not do it without you. Through expeditionary outreach support including care packages, snacks, holiday celebration items and internet services provided throughout challenging deployments, we help ensure service members stay connected. America is by their side, wherever their assignments take them.

Watch how the USO rises to the challenge of serving those who serve us all and is a Force Behind the Forces®.


The USO Pathfinder® Transition Program extends the USO experience to active duty, Reserve, National Guard and military spouses by offering professional development services throughout the duration of the service member’s or military spouse’s career, as well as when they transition out of the military and settle into their new communities.

This video shows how the USO Pathfinder program helps service members chart a route to success. You help make services like this one possible.

USO donors and partners provide critical support that improves the daily lives of service members and their families. We’re not a government agency. We rely on supporters like you to fund the programs that make the biggest difference for those who serve.
