Press Release

 

Washington D.C.- Currently, even with the lapse of appropriations under the ongoing government shutdown, Members of Congress continue to receive their salaries. During the shutdown, Congressman Marshall, M.D. will not be accepting a paycheck and will be donating his pay to the Fort Riley United Service Organizations instead.

USO offers programs, services, and support for the spouses and families of soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley. The organization supports the families of our nation’s heroes that are coping with long deployments and long separations that are a part of life for military families. Through a variety of programs including reading initiatives for children of soldiers, free meals just before payday for service members, and homecoming kits for wounded warriors, USO supports those that serve our country.
