FAMILIES OF THE FALLEN SUPPORT

The USO offers the families of heroes killed in action the critical support they need. This program arranges for final transportation and provides a full service respite center. In addition, the USO introduces families to special programs that help them cope with their grief.

UNITED THROUGH READING'S MILITARY PROGRAM

The hardest hit members of a military family are often the youngest. This program allows troops the ability to read a bedtime story while being recorded on DVD for their child. It gives them the chance to connect, even when they can't be there in-person.
