Working with the USO to bring families together
There is nothing better than spending time with family and friends during the holidays. This year, to bring holiday cheer to deployed US servicemen and women and their families, we’re delighted to kick off the Holiday Military Connection, a partnership with the USO which will connect US military personnel in the Pacific region with their families stateside.
On Thanksgiving Eve, Skype and the USO will host transcontinental holiday dinners via Skype video call. Dinner attendees will be able to see and hear each other, share a priceless holiday meal, laughs and even tears in real-time. Imagine watching your mom or dad carve the Thanksgiving turkey from across the globe
In addition to the dinners, troops and their families can make memories all season long via free calls made possible through the donation of our Unlimited World calling subscriptions to the 18 USO centers in the Pacific region.
We are so happy to work with the USO to bring the comforts of home to these extraordinary men and women. To learn more about the program, see how military families are using Skype to say connected or submit your own Skype story, visit the USO pages on the Skype website.
