Blackwater Worldwide Becomes USO Worldwide Strategic Partner Print

ARLINGTON, Va., May, 15, 2008 – Blackwater Worldwide has joined the USO as its newest Worldwide Strategic Partner. Blackwater, a global leader in advanced law enforcement and military peacekeeping training, has committed $2 million over four years to support USO programs and services for the troops, including homecoming celebrations and logistical support for USO entertainment tours.

“We welcome Blackwater Worldwide to the list of corporations who demonstrate their commitment to supporting American service members and their families by partnering with the USO,” said Edward A. Powell, USO president and CEO. “This partnership will help the USO to continue its vital work Until Every One Comes Home.”

”We are honored to partner with such a fine organization,” said Blackwater President Gary Jackson. “Blackwater is a company that is owned, managed, and staffed almost entirely by military veterans, and we look forward to expanding the support we can offer to Americans serving overseas.”

Blackwater was founded in 1997 to support the training needs of the United States military and law enforcement communities. Since then, Blackwater has trained more than 100,000 local police officers, SWAT team members, homeland security professionals, military personnel and others to help prepare them to serve and protect U.S. citizens at home and abroad.

In addition to Blackwater Worldwide, USO Worldwide Strategic Partners include AT&T Inc., BAE Systems North America, Clear Channel Communications, The Coca-Cola Company, Gallery Furniture, S & K Sales Co., and TriWest Healthcare Alliance.

As a private, nonprofit organization, the work of the USO and its centers is made possible by the support of the American public. Corporate in-kind donations and sponsorships, along with volunteer hours and monetary donations, help the USO continue improving the lives of America’s men and women in uniform and their families. For more information on the USO’s programs and services, and how to help, visit www.uso.org.
