The HOME&AWAY campaign, now in its fifth year, highlights how the USO of Illinois and Boeing are committed to helping service members and their military families thrive. Our nation’s armed forces and their families make many sacrifices to protect our freedoms. While we support their efforts at home and away, we may overlook the opportunity to say thank you, or be able to find a way to make a tangible difference. This year, Boeing and the USO of Illinois teamed up with the Chicago Blackhawks to honor 75 Veterans ranging from WWII to present day conflicts on the Ice at the November 11th Blackhawks Veterans Day game. The Chicago Blackhawks also wore special camo warm-up jersey’s the day of the game that were auctioned off. All of the money from the auction will be donated to the USO of Illinois.
