March 2019’s Operation: We Love Recruiters program encourages our military members to grow their own luck. Quite literally, since the gift we delivered this month was a kit to grow your own four-leaf clovers!
Our volunteers, Art and Judy, ventured out to visit 65 military recruiters at stations located throughout Northern Colorado on March 5th. Metro Denver recruiters, don’t worry, we’ll be visiting you in a couple weeks!
The Operation: We Love Recruiters program is designed to connect military recruiters to the USO family. While most active duty military service members work at a military installation and have a community of their peers to rely on, those in the recruiting field only have a handful of other people in their office, and almost all are located away from military installations. We’ve designed this program to provide a smile and a “you’re not forgotten” along with a small token or treat on a regular basis.
The items themselves are relatively inconsequential compared to the interaction with the volunteers and any other special guests who stop by and visit. The items provide an icebreaker and a more substantial reason for a visit. Visits are typically no more than 10 minutes for each office to ensure we’re only offering a quick break in their day as we realize the recruiters have a job to do too.
