Though the USO was founded by FDR just prior to the beginning of WWII, its mission in the present remains the same. The organization brings a bit of home to our armed forces no matter where they are stationed. Just prior to takeoff, this year’s USO tour crew prepares to visit seven countries in eight days. #USOpbs premieres Monday, 11/7 at 9/8c.
