2020 is well under way, and the drawdown in the Middle East has reversed course. We now have a whole new brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division deployed, new units are moving into Poland and the Pacific, and an entire new branch—the Space Force, which may deploy soldiers to the Moon as early as August . As we continue our proud tradition of providing comfort and entertainment to service members wherever they may be serving our beloved country, the United Service Organizations (USO) announces our 2020 entertainer tour lineup!
