“While I live elsewhere, when checking out Charity Navigator I have decided to support USO of Hampton Roads and Central VA. Receiving this score tells me your organization truly supports the troops in your area. With a cousin retired from the Navy, and my late husband, a National Guard retiree, I want my donation to be wisely used,” said one generous donor.
