Michael Welch Spends a Week With the USO

The USO is a special organization. It provides, among other things, entertainment for our troops and their families. Anyone who is in the military can tell you that money is tight; servicemen do not make tremendous salaries. So, to have a Hollywood star come and entertain is quite the treat, especially when you are a continent away from home!

In talking about his visit, Michael Welch said  “Traveling with the USO and meeting military families has been a new experience for me, and one that I will never forget. Hearing firsthand what it’s like to have a loved one deployed is humbling and it makes me realize how much military families sacrifice, and how grateful I am for their service.”

One of our favorite stories of all time, is when Peter Facinelli signed Twilight DVD’s at Fort Lewis and missed his plane because he refused to leave until every military family who wanted to see him had that chance.

Kudos to both Mike and Peter!


  1. that’s fantastic to see an actor that is so young doing something worthwhile and not spending all his time partying. way to go Michael. the USO is one of my favorite charity to give to I’m so glad he and Peter take the time to support our troops.
