Writing is very much an art. Just look at our scrawled notes that we leave each other compared to the beautiful penmanship that was required years ago. It is both a visual and an emotional art. I love to hand write notes, letters, and journal entries. Writing is a very creative endeavor that requires skill, passion, and discipline.

The United Service Organization (USO) is a nonprofit organization that provided live entertainment and other programs to members of the United States Armed Forces and their families. Since 1941, it has worked in partnership with the Department of Defense, relying heavily on private contributions and on funds, goods, and services from various corporate and individual donors. Although it is congressionally chartered, it is not a government agency. The USO operates 160 centers worldwide.
