Imagine for a moment you're far away from your loved ones at this special time of year. You're cold, tired and really miss the simple things like talking to your kids on the phone.
That's what it is like for our troops spending this holiday season in Afghanistan, Iraq and at outposts around the world.
But through the USO's At Home In Our Hearts holiday campaign, supporters like you have the chance to give our troops something really special: the opportunity to make a phone call home.
Whether it's the sound of your daughter's voice, hearing your son talk about his football game, or the opportunity to tell your parents you're alright when you're deployed during the holidays, it's a phone call you'll treasure.
Operation Phone Home goes the extra mile to connect our troops with their families. At centers across the world, staff and volunteers are going all-out to give our troops invaluable moments with their families that bridge the miles.
There's nothing we can ever really do to thank our troops enough for the sacrifices they make. But we owe it to them to try and right now that means helping them make personal connections with loved ones to brighten their holiday.
Every dollar you give to "Operation Phone Home" can provide twenty minutes of talk time for our troops. With your help, we can bring them all a few minutes of holiday warmth with family.
Thanks for all you do.
