Until Everyone Comes Home

Thousands of miles away from home in any land in any war, life’s little things mean a lot.

Like toilet paper, toothbrushes, candy and wet wipes. Like letters and pictures and photographs — regardless of whom they’re from.

The United Service Organizations, or USO, has been supplying American soldiers with these items for the past 65 years. But these tangible objects, though in huge demand, pale in comparison to the intangible gift USO delivers time and again. With every care package, letter, movie, phone card and each Slim Jim smoky sausage, comes hope. Hope that lifts morale. Hope that makes it worthwhile to get up and continue fighting. Hope that breaks the monotony of weeks in a bunker.
