In honor of our military heroes, American will reward AAdvantage® members generosity with 10 AAdvantage miles for each dollar donated through American’s Miles in Support of All Who Serve campaign, which benefits the USO.
The USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and military families. They’re the way America says “thank you” for all they do through delivering highly valued programs, morale-boosting services and engaging entertainment at more than 160 locations in 27 states and 14 countries.
Their footprint is reflected in nearly 9 million visits to 160 USO centers from South Korea to Germany, from Okinawa to Afghanistan, at training bases and airports across the country and for those serving on ships and squadrons deployed around the world. The centers provide a warm and comforting place where troops and family members can connect with each other via Internet or telephone, play a video game, catch a movie, have a snack or just put their feet up and relax.
Recently the USO celebrated the opening of their newest centers located in the airports at Nashville and El Paso and renovated locations in the Columbia, South Carolina and San Diego airports. This summer they will open a USO center at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, providing troops with a place to rest, relax and connect with their friends and family back home.
