Funds raised from this event will enable USO Guam to continue to support more than 40,000 USO center visits each year by military members and their families, and the thousands more that benefit from our mobile programming. Your support in events such as this allow USO Guam to continue keeping troops connected to family, home and country throughout their service to our nation.
