Proudly supporting the USO mission
A major corporate sponsor for over a decade.
TKS donates technical solutions, expertise, equipment, and services for USO Centers, and also the office facilities for the USO Europe headquarters now located within the TKS building in Kaiserslautern.
In 2012, TKS became a USO Worldwide Strategic Partner. This title is reserved for organizations that donate $500,000 annually. In a ceremony held at the Ramstein Air Base Passenger Terminal, the USO recognized TKS’s steadfast commitment to their mission and officially bestowed the title of USO Worldwide Strategic Partner to TKS Managing Director Karl-Heinz Stahl.
TKS is the only foreign-based company to join an elite group of USO partners at this level of sponsorship which includes BAE Systems, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Microsoft. Please see the USO press release for additional details. USO PRESS RELEASE ►
