No one likes being away from family, friends, and traditions for major holidays. That’s why we try to make it easier through special events in conjunction with major U.S. holidays.
Many of these are geared toward the younger audience, but there are plenty of happenings the big kids can enjoy, too.
Of course, as the year draws to an end, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season. It also marks the season when those far from home often miss home the most. Recognizing this, USO centers around the world work to make every service member and military family member’s holiday season bright.
