This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. For more than 80 years, the United Service Organization has been the nation’s leading nonprofit organization in serving the men and women of the U.S. military and their families. USO Intermountain Executive Director Tim Mullin joins us with more.

Tim Mullin:

From the moment people join, through their deployments, and as they transition back to our communities the USO has been by their side.

In 2022 alone, the USO served military members and their families more than 10 million times. Thanks in part to the more than 700 employees and nearly 20,000 volunteers worldwide.

The USO has locations in more than 85 locations across Europe, Southwest Asia, and the Pacific.

There’s even a center at Salt Lake City International Airport. At this location, service members and their families can grab a quick snack, drink, use one of our laptops, or just relax and chill before or after a flight.

The USO also hosts or supports on average 10-12 morale-boosting and family-strengthening events per month for local military service members.

Whether it be newcomer briefings, spouse networking events or family days, the USO is always by the side of our Utah National Guardsman, reservists or active-duty service members at Hill AFB in Utah!

Derek Miller:

USO donors and partners provide critical support that improves the daily lives of service members and their families. Learn how you can get involved on the USO website. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
