No one likes being away from family, friends, and traditions for major holidays. That’s why we try to make it easier through special events in conjunction with major U.S. holidays.
Many of these are geared toward the younger audience, but there are plenty of happenings the big kids can enjoy, too. From Valentine’s Day to Winter Fest, USO Denver has got you covered.
Of course, as the year draws to an end, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season. It also marks the season when those far from home often miss home the most. Recognizing this, USO Denver and USO centers around the world work to make every service member and military family member’s holiday season bright.
Holidays are a great time for families to relax and enjoy the time they have together. It is also a time no one likes being away from their loved ones and traditions.
A sample of holiday celebrations conducted by USO Denver includes:
- Seven Days of Heart
- Christmas in July
- Operation We Love Recruiters
- Cookies and Crafts
- Hot Cocoa to Go
- Unit Holiday Party Support
