I thought this was cool... Anything for the Troops!



New Use for Xbox Live


A new U.S. Organizations (USO) program is using Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox videogame system, along with its Xbox Live online component, as a way to allow members of the military to connect with loved ones back home.


Dubbed Operation: Live Connections, the initiative was inspired by a similar one recently adopted by the U.S. Air Forces in Europe (USAFE), in which 17 Xbox lounges where installed at 14 bases in seven European countries.


Beginning this month, USO services centers in the U.S. and around the world will be equipped with Xboxes, Live accounts and games such as NFL Fever 2004, Project Gotham Racing 2 and Crimson Skies.


Said Ned Powell, president and CEO of USO, "Operation: Live Connections will enable the USO to continue its commitment to supporting and entertaining military families in the United States and abroad through engaging, interactive online gaming via Xbox Live."
