2022 USO EXPERIENCE VIRGINIA BEACH HONOR JUMPER PROGRAM The USO Hampton Roads Central Virginia (HRCV) is excited to announce that with the permission of the former Combat Wounded Coalition (CWC) organization and after two years of COVID impacting our local programming, the USO will continue its Honor Jumper Recognition Program. This will take place during the USO Experience Virginia Beach Event at the Virginia Beach oceanfront on June 3 with a rain date of June 4.

What is the Honor Jumper Recognition Program and how does it work?

  • A family member submits a questionnaire along with a picture of choice and biography to the USO.
  • The USO will assign wounded warriors and private jumpers a special commemorative patch that will accompany the individual during their jump. These patches will be associated with the name of a fallen warrior.
  • They will also receive a copy of the provided biography and photo so they can learn more about that warrior prior to their jump.
  • After the jump, these patches will be collected from each of the jumpers and added to a static display on the Virginia Beach board walk for the general public to view and honor.
  • After USO Experience, these commemorative patches and certificates marking the event will be mailed to the participating family member who submitted the questionnaire.
    Biography To help the jumpers better understand who they are honoring, please provide information pertaining to their military service as well as some information about who they were as a person in general. For example, what they liked doing in their free time, favorite meals, sports team, etc. and if you choose, some information about their families.
    Photo The photo can be of them in uniform, on deployment, or one that you feel represents how they would want to be remembered.

Please email your Questionnaire, Bio and Photo no later than May 20, 2022 in order to give us time to consolidate and begin to assign names to the skydivers. Send to: kemiller@uso.org

Important - Due to a host of variables that may be outside of our control, (Weather, Re-fueling, etc.) we cannot provide a list or schedule of which Heroes names will be jumped on any particular day or plane. However, we can guarantee that your Hero will be honored during USO Experience Virginia Beach.
