Throughout its history, the USO has served our troops at traditional, brick and mortar facilities. In 2007, the USO started taking its services on the road, out to the troops, with Mobile USO's. This “USO on wheels” is designed to support troops serving in locations without a USO center.
The Mobile USO provides a comfortable place for men and women in uniform to relax and enjoy free food like flapjacks. Our Mobile USO offers a laptop, a large screen television, and X-box gaming system. Contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.

United Through Reading Military Program
_The hardest hit members of a military family are often the youngest. Day-to-day life without a parent can be sad and confusing. So imagine the thrill on a child’s face when he or she sees and hears a bedtime story read by mom or dad. The USO partnership with United Through Reading® allows our deployed troops the ability to read their kids a bedtime book and virtually be there, even when they can’t be there in-person. Service men and women simply read a book aloud while being recorded on DVD for their child. The DVD is mailed to the child and family back home. All recording equipment, books, packing and shipping materials are supplied by the USO.
United Through Reading®, a California-based nonprofit organization, has served over one million beneficiaries since1990. Since partnering with the USO in 2006, more than 100,000 books have been read at USOs worldwide, recorded, and enjoyed by families. Contact us for more information at 645-1827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
