Get Involved with the USO Today!


Remember that joyful feeling of being presented with your first bicycle? Operation That’s My Ride enables thousands of USO volunteers to assemble bikes and tricycles for children of military families serving on bases and ships. At USO sponsored military appreciation events and throughout the holidays, children of military families are presented with helmets, instruction manuals for safe cycling, and brand new bikes tied with bows and notes of appreciation. This is just one way we can help to ensure that sacrifices made by military children are not forgotten. To find out ways you can volunteer with the USO or to make a donation, visit www.usonyc.org
