United Through Reading
The USO partnership with United Through Reading® gives our deployed and deploying troops the ability to read their kids a bedtime book and virtually be there, even when they can’t be there in-person.
Servicemen and women simply read a book aloud while being recorded on DVD for their child. This service is available at many USO centers in airports, community locations, military medical facilities and overseas bases. The DVD and book are mailed to the child and family back home.
United Through Reading®, a California-based nonprofit organization, has served over one million beneficiaries since 1990. Since partnering with the USO in 2006, more than 100,000 books have been read at USOs worldwide, recorded, and enjoyed by families.
To request a United Through Reading session, visit one of our participating centers or contact HDonohue@usometro.org.
