traveled to Afghanistan Monday to sign paperwork laying out the
relationship between the United States and Afghanistan going

gave a televised address back to the U.S. from
Bagram Air Base in the eastern part of the country.
This year, the USO celebrates 75 years of keeping the nation’s

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.
