The Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families
Sesame Street and the USO are bringing the furry, fuzzy and friendly Muppets of Sesame Street to military families!
Beginning September 2009, the traveling Sesame Street/USO Experience will reach military installations in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, Alaska, and Hawaii. This free show, exclusively for military children and their families, features Elmo and his friends Rosita, Cookie Monster, Grover, and Zoe, as well as free giveaways for families. The tour is part of Sesame Street's Talk, Listen, Connect initiative for military families.
