About the USO - The Force Behind the Forces®


For 79 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.

USO airport centers throughout the country offer around-the clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. Our trademark USO tours bring America and its celebrities to service members who are assigned far from home, to entertain them and convey the support of the nation.

Because of the falling interest rates and rising home values, interest in refinancing has increased over the last few years. For homeowners who do not plan on moving for a few years, a refinance could be a great chance to replace their current mortgage with a new loan that better fits their personal and financial needs.

Can You Refinance Your Mortgage to Consolidate Debt? 11 May 2020 Many Americans are burdened with unsecured debt. High-interest credit cards, car payments and student loans are just three types of debt that can be obstacles that prevent a homeowner from taking control of their finances. Some homeowners turn to personal loans to consolidate debt, and later face even higher bills because of unexpected fees and added interest.
