"I'd say my favorite moment volunteering is when I know someone is having surgery, and then they come in and they are doing better.... You form relationships with the people that come in here, they quickly become familiar faces. You tend to learn a lot about these people, meet their families, and become invested in how they are doing. It really brings me joy when I see improvement."
Ruth, a four year volunteer with USO Warrior and Family Center at Bethesda: Find out how to support USO
