United Through Reading Program
Who couldn’t use a little pick me up, even on the best day? The USO realizes this and understands that what makes one person calm and relaxed may not work for the next, which is why our centers offer a variety of options to help promote emotional wellness.
For those far from home – or about to leave for a length of time – it’s about staying connected. To help shorten the distance, many USO centers offer service members the chance to record themselves reading a favorite story to their child. Other centers help send “Virtual Hugs & High Fives,” with a recorded video message. All USO centers offer a way to connect through email or phone.
