Good morning fellow Warriors!

My Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta here at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL is raising funds for the USO (our main philanthropy). Although the majority of the fundraising will be occurring throughout the semester at various events that we will be hosting, donations are open to the public. Whether you donate to the USO via our team or not, we strongly recommend and ask you to give whatever you can!

The USO helps our troops in so many ways. Donations go towards paying for phone/skype calls back home, hot meals, portable gaming/media devices, reading materials, and much more! 

Thank you! Bless everyone, the Ohio State University, and our brave men and women in service!! U.S.A.!! U.S.A.!! U.S.A.!!

Thank you for your efforts, BRS. 

The USO was a welcome sight for these eyes in a few overseas ports when I served. No question those on active duty now appreciate the support. 

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

My living quarters were in Camp McGregor and we would bus to Camp Oregrande during my train up for deployment.  These places are in the middle of nowhere New Mexico.  The USO was there though, on this tiny base.  Was so thankful for them.  They gave us a place to go and just kick back and relax.  The USO is a great organization that is very well appreciated amongst soldiers/airmen/seamen/marines.

We have many Brothers who have and are serving and, from hearing their stories first-hand, we've really come to appreciate everything that the USO does. Such a wonderful organization. Thank you all for your service!!
