Service in defense of our nation is an enduring mission, which is why Boeing stands alongside organizations like the USO. Together, through programs like Home & Away “Salute the Troops” and the Mobile USO, we can ensure that these veterans, military personnel and their families receive the recognition and support they deserve.
Healing Heroes , a book designed to support children dealing with the challenging return of a loved one experiencing the visible and invisible wounds of war, is just one way we are working together to support our military families. The books were given to parents and children at a recent USO Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore and Warrior Transition Brigade-sponsored family day event at Fort Belvoir in Alexandria, Va., and will continue to be distributed to USO locations throughout the country.
The USO has supported military members and their families for more than 70 years, and since 1996, Boeing has had the opportunity to be a part of that. With more than 24,000 military veterans working at the company, we are proud to give back to those who have served - and continue to serve our country.
