The mission of ON★PATROL is to honor those who serve and those
who serve them. It is our hope that through ON★PATROL we can share
as many stories as possible through the magazine, USOonPatrol.org,
and our community of guest columnists and fellow organizations. If
you have a story to share with us, please email us at EditorOnPatrol@uso.org.
