Thanksgiving Day: Remembering Those We Miss

As most of us head off to be with (or are already with) our loved ones today to share turkey and pie and all the warmth of their company, we take note of how blessed we are to have those moments.

Those moments that matter.

From Edward A. Powell, president and CEO of USO Worldwide Headquarters:

The year is full of magic moments -- moments that add meaning to our lives:

  • a child dashing into your arms
  • a long, lingering embrace
  • a quiet chat with an old friend
  • just a moment's peace, free from tension and fear
These are the moments that most of us take for granted, but that our soldiers at the front seldom have. It's a sacrifice they make for us, so that we here at home can enjoy our precious moments in peace and freedom...and safety.

That's what the USO is all about, and what we do all year long. We deliver the small precious moments, the human touch, a taste of home, a moment to escape the daily grind of war.

Whether it's helping a young soldier settle her family in a foreign land; counseling a child whose parents are both overseas; providing a place of refuge and a chance to call home for GIs in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, and all over the world. Whatever it takes to support our men and women and their families, the USO is there....

"Until Every One Comes Home."

Edward A. Powell

Please consider giving this Thanksgiving to the USO. And a warm wish for those who are missing their loved ones this year; may you be together again, soon.
