Kellie Pickler Named USO Global Ambassador
As an avid supporter of the U.S. Armed Forces, country singer-songwriter and actress Kellie Pickler will help lead the effort for Americans to give more than thanks to the military community as a USO Global Ambassador, in honor of the 80th anniversary of the United Service Organizations. “I am honored to join the USO as a Global Ambassador for their 80th anniversary of supporting America’s military and especially this campaign encouraging all Americans to give more than thanks,” shares Pickler. “The USO has allowed me so many opportunities to serve those who serve us, and this is another way I can help shine a light on something that matters…supporting our servicemen, servicewomen, their families and letting them know we don’t take what they do for granted.” Pickler, alongside USO Global Ambassador Wilmer Valderrama, will support the organization’s Give More Than Thanks initiative – a campaign encouraging all Americans to find actionable ways to express their gratitude for the service and sacrifice of our troops and their families. Throughout the year, Pickler and Valderrama will participate in events and entertainment engagements for service members, raise awareness of our military’s needs, and share ways Americans can help the USO give more than thanks.
