Memorial Day means so much more than just being a holiday that unofficially kicks off summer. It’s a special day where we remember those who serve so that we can enjoy freedom. During the patriotic six weeks of summer — the time from Memorial Day to Independence Day — we join the USO to honor and celebrate the service members who protect the country.
To commemorate, American hosts a 6-week campaign supporting the USO’s mission to lift the spirits of America’s troops and families. Your ongoing support of the USO makes a significant, positive and lasting difference in the lives of our troops and military families and assures them that you are always by their side in times of war and peace.
If you would like to join us by making a donation to the USO in support of our troops and their families, we will reward your generosity with 10 AAdvantage® miles for each dollar donated through American’s Miles in Support of All Who Serve program. Your contribution has immense power to help those whose lives have been altered profoundly by their dedication and service to our country.
|Honor||Join us as we recognize and honor our nation's heroes and families of the fallen this Memorial Day, May 27.|
|Salute||Help salute our nation's heroes by flying the American flag high and proud during National Flag Week, June 9-15.|
|Celebrate||Celebrate America's independence by thanking our nation's heroes and military families for their daily sacrifices on Independence Day, July 4|
You can also support the military and their families with the USO co-branded gift card. For every $50 of travel purchased on a gift card, American will donate $5 when you select the USO gift card option.
