2004 Olympic all-around champion Carly Patterson will serve as a USO entertainer following the Olympic Games and will continue the long standing tradition of bringing excitement and laughter to troops stationed abroad. Thededicated troops she will encounter are far from home, family, and friends. The visit will bring to them " a touch of home" and reassures all that they have not been forgotten.

During Patterson’s tour she will see a variety of military installations, remote and isolated sites, and many make shift sites, places most Americans never have the opportunity to experience. She will encounter the most gracious and appreciative audiences, our American Troops.
