The Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families
The Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families made its debut in July 2008 and is the longest running entertainment tour in USO history. The tour is designed to help military families deal with the unique challenges they face.
Since the tour’s inception, it has taken its message to more than 540,000 troops and military families and performedmore than 1,000 shows on 149 military installations in 33 states and 11 countries. Additionally, the tour has logged more than 206,000 miles and distributed more than 2.6 million giveaways. Last year’s installment debuted a brand new show centered around the transition from military to civilian life in addition to its ever popular show about moving. The tour is scheduled to hit the road again in 2016 to visit more bases and perform more shows.
In addition to tour stops around the world, through our partnership with Sesame Workshop, the USO supports military families by providing tools to help them adapt to many of life’s challenges. The USO offers an array of DVDs, including the sets “When Families Grieve” and “Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce” – distributing more than 8,300 copies this year to USO centers and other military service agencies worldwide.
