As Americans we have a profound appreciation and gratitude for the dedication and sacrifice of our military service men and women and their families. This Veteran’s Day, join us as our community comes together to pay tribute and say thank you!

This inspiring program will include favorite patriotic songs we all know and love such as the Armed Forces Salute, Let Freedom Ring and the Star Spangled Banner as well as a Big Band Medley and a wonderful selection by composer Aaron Copeland, Old American Songs.

The USO Show Troupe is part of an American tradition that goes back 75 years to its beginnings in the muddy camp shows of the South Pacific. Today the pride and passion that fueled that early music lives on through the USO Show Troupe.

The New York City-based USO entertainment group organizes nearly 450 performances, concerts, screenings, celebrity entertainment visits and other world-class entertainment events each year.

  • HISTORY OF THE USO

    Throughout our country’s history, Americans have felt profound appreciation and gratitude for the dedication and sacrifice of our troops and their families. The USO provides a tangible way for all of us to say thank you, as it has for 75 years.

    Thanks to your generosity, the USO fulfills its mission of strengthening America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. Through the USO, you touch their lives through an extensive range of programs at more than 160 locations in 27 states and 14 countries, and at hundreds of entertainment events each year. Thousands of USO volunteers do everything possible to provide a home away from home for our service members and to keep them connected to the families they left behind.

    The USO makes sure your help goes to those who need it the most: service members serving in combat, their families, our wounded, ill and injured service members and their families, and families of the fallen.

    The USO is the only private, non-profit organization that serves the men and women in the U.S. military and their families throughout their service – from the moment they join, through their deployments and as they transition back to their communities. We’re the way America says thank you to all these amazing men and women and what they do for all of us.
