This is a game changer

As a Deputy Air Expeditionary Group Commander at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan, I saw the selfless determination our best and bravest have to offer.

Two generous donors are honoring that spirit by matching every online donation to our wounded heroes and troops serving around the world before midnight April 30 – up to $60,000!

Today, I see the critical need the USO fills by building hope and resiliency for all of our troops, particularly the wounded. Every day, we have more wounded troops entering our specialized facilities at Fort Belvoir and our recently opened USO Warrior and Family Center located on Naval Support Activity Bethesda, home of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Some troops say the USO saved their lives. We reached more than 1,500 troops in transition last year. With your help, we’ll reach even more in 2014.

Don’t miss this opportunity to double your impact. We have 5 days to go and your tax-deductible gift for our troops will be matched, dollar for dollar up to $60,000.

Click here to rush $10 or more to support our wounded heroes and troops serving around the world – every dollar you give before midnight April 30 will be DOUBLED up to $60,000.

800,000 Troops Need You Now -- 1 in 3 in Iraq and Afghanistan were wounded

The USO is not a government agency. We rely on citizens like you – people who understand the incredible sacrifices made by our troops and who want to give a little back.

Right now, there couldn’t be a better moment for you to support our troops. Two generous donors have offered to double your gift. But time is running out – we only have 5 days left.

Click here to rush your contribution – your $10 can become $20 for our troops, if you give today.

I see it every day – the USO means so much to our troops. I can’t thank you enough for your support – we couldn’t do it without you.
