Super excited to show my support for my son and the USO! Proud Army Mom and Military Mama Network member supporting the USO by running in the Army 10 Miler! From the USO:
The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
For over 75 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
The USO is proud to partner with the 2017 Army Ten Miler. Each year over 35,000 runners come to Washington, DC to participate in the Army’s annual Army Ten-Miler running event. ATM is produced by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington and is the third largest 10-mile race in the world.
