5 things you don't know about our troops

For nearly 75 years, the USO has been by the side of our troops and their families from the moment they deploy to their transition to civilian life: from delivering small comforts of home, like a hot cup of coffee on base in Kandahar, to life-changing programs that help wounded troops and their families readjust to a new normal.

And after more than a decade of war, you might be surprised to know there are still more than a million troops on active duty serving around the world. The USO is there for every one of them. We hope you’ll take a moment to learn a little more about our nation’s heroes:


43.1% of active duty personnel are 25 or younger. For many of our troops, boot camp was their first time away from home.


Only 6% of enlisted personnel have a Bachelor’s degree. With the unemployment rate for veterans who have served since 9/11 at 10%, it’s critical that we have tools in place to help them take that next step toward a successful, meaningful civilian life.


Deployments put a real strain on marriages: Post-9/11 veterans who were married while they were in the service had a more difficult time adjusting to life after the military than their unmarried counterparts.


The longest war in American history has left more than 50,000 service members wounded in action, 150,000 with PTSD and more than 300,000 suffering traumatic brain injury.

The USO of South Texas works to make military families feel like they have a home away from home. In this week's Military Matters report, John-Thomas Kobos shows us why the group needs the community to step up and help with a special program.
