Elizabeth Vallette is the director of USO Houston and a former captain with the U.S. Army. We talk about the place of women warriors, especially since the Marine Corps is advertising the graduation of new female recruits. We also discuss the unfair difficulties soldiers face reintegrating society after deployment and the small creature comforts that matter to servicemen while they travel and when they’re abroad. This is where we can help by donating goods or cash. All donations to the USO Houston go to help their operations here in town. It is a worthy donation to think about as we head into the giving season.
