is the nation’s leading organization serving U.S. military members and their families throughout their time of active service. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side with a variety of programs and services focused on connection, strengthening, wellness, and resiliency offered at more than 200 locations around the world.
A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to support its activities and is powered by volunteers to accomplish its mission. It is notable that 93 cents of every dollar donated to the USO goes directly to funding a critical program or service.
“U.S. military members serve our nation, keep us safe, and are a force for good throughout the world,” stated Autobell COO Carl Howard. “We want to help express America’s gratitude and commitment to our service members by supporting USO programs that keep them connected to family, home, and country -- everything that gives meaning to their service.”
