This supply crate is a little different. This one was we sent to Daniel Wood. Daniel is the supervisor of the USO facility at Ft. Sam Houston. We sent them over a crate loaded up with the latest games and hardware for the men and women of Ft. Sam to play and rest with, read on to hear from David.
I’m the Center Operations Supervisor for the USO center on Fort Sam Houston. I have been serving the military for over a decade and my center servers over 400 daily and about 10,000 monthly.
About the USO: — or over 76 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
USO airport centers throughout the country offer around-the-clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. Our trademark USO tours bring America and its celebrities to service members who are assigned far from home, to entertain them and convey the support of the nation. And our many specialized programs offer a continuum support to service members throughout their journey of service, from the first time they don the uniform until the last time they take it off.
The USO is not part of the federal government. A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection.
When they received the crate, Daniel was awesome enough to send back some amazing pics.
Not only did we ship out a crate, but we also supported a live event on base. On July 4th the San Antonio and Austin, TX Stacks went to Ft. Sam Houston and held a Madden tournament where 28 people competed, ate BBQ, and bonded with each other, all in the USO facility.
As always we’re thankful to have the opportunity to not only send out supply crates but also show up and empower our service members through gaming.
