USO Special Delivery Celebrates 160th Event for Military Parents

The birth of a child is typically a time when family and friends gather together to support mothers and fathers-to-be as they celebrate and navigate their changing family dynamics. However, military parents can experience this time in their lives far away from their homes and traditional networks of support.
This is where the USO steps in to deliver on its mission of strengthening through connection. Since 2013, the USO and Heidi Murkoff, author of the “What to Expect” book series and creator of and the WTE Foundation, have partnered in hosting Special Delivery baby showers for new military parents and parents-to-be around the globe. Special Delivery celebrates, educates, and connects new and expectant parents who are often stationed far from their families, friends, and support networks during their pregnancies.
