Coffee Connections

Military spouses don’t wear camouflage uniforms, drive humvees or walk around with a weapon. They don’t deploy overseas, work on the front lines or carry out top-secret missions at night.

But still, military spouses serve.

While their mission isn’t as flashy as a scene from “Zero Dark Thirty,” military spouses’ critical role is to make sure all is well at home so their service member can focus on doing their job. Military spouses are the silent force that makes sure the bills get paid, the kids get to school and the dog gets fed at night. They solo parent during deployments, coordinate PCS moves every few years and do all of the unseen work to make sure the household runs smoothly.

Simply stated, being a military spouse can be a difficult, isolating experience – until the USO gets involved.

Coffee Connections offers spouses a relaxed environment to enjoy coffee and casual conversation on a monthly basis. Attendees even get a free mug to take home with them after the program.

“I’m a military spouse of 14 years … I’m familiar with what the USO offers, but really enjoyed this opportunity to meet other spouses.”

Each month, we also offer a USO Coffee Connections Live event, featuring a rotating cast of special guests, that is live-streamed for military spouses to watch from their homes anywhere in the world.
