Anna Kournikova will travel to Spain and commemorate Month of the Military Child as part of her fourth USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour April 14-18. Traveling to the region to extend her heartfelt gratitude to military families, Kournikova will talk with and motivate military kids about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following their dreams.
A strong supporter of troops and their families, she first teamed up with the USO in 2008 and traveled to Guam. Touched by the experience, she went on to Turkey and Germany in 2009 and spent a week visiting with military school children and wounded warriors. In December 2009, she participated in a three-country, seven-day USO holiday tour, which included stops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Germany led by the Admiral Mike Mullen. To date, Kournikova has boosted the spirits of more than 10,900 service members and their families with help from the USO.
“It is hard to believe that this trip will mark my fourth time working with the USO. They are such a wonderful organization and they do so many meaningful things for troops and their families.
