Veteran’s Day weekend is upon us and this is a good opportunity to tell you about USO’s new campaign – Every Moment Counts. This weekend the USO is inviting Americans to visit www.USOmoments.org to learn how they can take a moment to say thanks to our troops and give a moment to support them and their families.
There are many moments that we take for granted that are moments that are routinely missed by active duty troops, their families, our wounded, ill and injured troops, their caregivers, and families of the fallen. You know those moments: Graduations, weddings, the birth of a child, holidays, something as simple as Sunday dinner and so many more. It is more important than ever that we honor the service and sacrifice of our servicemen and women and their families.
The USO is working hard every day to help make those connections and moments happen in a variety of ways. Through Every Moment Counts the USO are telling the stories of America’s troops and their families. You’ll see how these moments and stories have changed lives, inspired others and above all remind Americans of the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes…because Every Moment Counts.
You can visit USOmoments.org and “Take a Moment” to thank our troops and learn more about the challenges they and their families face, or “Give a Moment” by donating to the USO to help provide the resources that support troops and their families wherever they may be serving around the world. The smallest gestures – from mowing the lawn of a wounded warrior, babysitting for a military mom, or posting a photo of your loved one in uniform – all help create special everyday moments.
About the USO:
The USO (United Service Organizations) lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families millions of times each year at hundreds of places worldwide. They provide a touch of home through centers at airports and military bases, top quality entertainment and innovative programs and services. They also provide critical support to those who need them the most, including forward-deployed troops and their families, wounded warriors and their families and the families of the fallen.
The USO is a private, non-profit organization, not a government agency. They rely on the generosity of our volunteers and donors.
All Americans are encouraged to share and create moments for our troops and their families in their own communities by using #USOmoments on Facebook or Twitter and visiting USOmoments.org for more information.
