For almost a decade, United Through Reading has been helping military parents maintain a connection to their children during deployment. Through the program, deployed servicemembers are recorded reading stories to their children. Each servicemember is recorded on a DVD reading a book to their child, and the program then sends the book and DVD to that child. The service is free. For more information, contact your local USO office or visit the USO's United Through Reading webpage.
