Emergency Preparedness – Support Our Troops.
“To none is freedom more dear than to those who have bled and fought to preserve it.”
The USO is a great organization few seem to know much about. “Isn’t it a government program from World War II to entertain the troops,” questioned a traveler who saw their sign in a major US airport?
Like the Boy Scouts, the USO is chartered by Congress as a non-profit public funded organization that provides essential and unique services to support servicemen and their families. Operation Phone Home, cyber canteens, Operation Care Package, mobile canteens, fleet support centers, AND entertainment around the world are provided the troops. Also, overseas community centers, childcare services, education programs and family centers are provided for dependents.
The military has not only preserved us against foes, but has given great education and skills training to our men and women and to citizens of other countries in which freedom has had beginnings. As warriors for basic human rights it is not hard to see why soldiers have opened doors for our LDS missionaries to follow with the gospel of agency and accountability.
Watch for a USO next time you pass through a major airport. Visit them at www.uso.org and help.
