My father was a veteran of two wars, having served in the Marine Corp in both World War II and Korea. Despite the fact that I do not support acts of war, his and others’ selfless service to our country has inspired me to support the efforts of the USO for many years now. On this Memorial Day, please remember the men and women who sacrifice so much to serve in our military by making a tax-deductible donation to USO Dot Org – which will help support our troops, lift their spirits and honor their service – at this link. Thank you.
