USO - For The Troops

See how the USO has strengthened U.S. service personnel for more than 75 years.

For 75 years, abroad and on the homefront, the USO (United Service Organizations) has been by the sides of American service members at every point in their military journey. The film takes the viewer behind the scenes on a 2016 around-the-world USO tour, and offers unprecedented access to the background operations that make it possible for celebrities to travel across the world purely to express their gratitude to the troops and bring echoes of home to those stationed overseas. In-depth interviews with Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Colin Powell, Ann-Margret, former President George W. Bush, Raquel Welch, Al Franken and a host of other personalities highlight the importance of these tours to the men and women who serve in our armed forces.
