USO

The USO mission is to provide morale, welfare and recreation-type services to uniformed military personnel. The original intent of Congress for the USO was to represent the American people by extending a "Touch of Home" to their military members. Thus, although some USO programs/services are similar to those provided by other agencies, the hallmark of the USO has been and will continue to be how, as much as what, services are provided.

The USO is chartered by the Congress as a non-profit charitable corporation and is not a part of the United States Government. It receives no direct government funding, but is endorsed by the President of the United States and the Secretary of Defense. Each President has been the Honorary Chairman of the USO since its inception.
