It's very unfortunate that the photos shown here only depict a small facet of what the USO actually does. USO is not a government agency. It is a privately funded organization. it is true that they provide free entertainment for troops that have served on the front lines, but they also provide support to their families back home. The USO often arranges for surprise re-unions for families that have been separated by long tours of duty, holiday meals on special days like US Thanksgiving and Christmas, and other "pieces of home" that let these soldiers know that they are still cared about. I know it is easy to believe that these soldiers are just trained killing machines, but the truth is, many of them serve because they love their country and feel that the things they hold dear in America are worth protecting. You may not always agree with the American government's idea of what needs to be protected (and many of the soldiers do not either), but at the very least, we should respect when an organization tries to remind people of their humanity and for a few brief moments, help them feel at home.

having morals and questioning ( in military terms disobeying) your superior orders are two different things....
