Support is provided at pre-mobilization and deployment events, and homecoming celebrations. A broad spectrum of services ensures that our troops and their families know the American public is there to support them during what can be one of the most challenging and difficult times of their lives. Deployment kits offer troops phone cards, snacks, personal hygiene and sundry related items to hold them over during their travels. Refreshments and snacks provide families with the little comforts when saying goodbye to loved ones. While service members are deployed, USO will develop customized programs for Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) and families left behind.
