United Through Reading
The hardest hit members of a military family are often the youngest. Day-to-day life without a parent can be sad and confusing. So imagine the thrill on a child’s face when he or she sees and hears a bedtime story read by mom or dad. The USO partnership with United Through Reading® allows our service members stationed away from home the ability to read their kids a bedtime book and virtually be there, even when they can’t be there in-person. Service members simply read a book aloud while being recorded on DVD for their child. The DVD and book are mailed to the child and family back home. All recording equipment, books, packing and shipping materials are supplied by the USO.
