Operation Birthday Cake
Birthdays aren’t supposed to be stressful, but when you’re separated by the world’s largest ocean and a dozen time zones, nothing is easy.
Luckily, families with loved ones serving in the Pacific don’t have to figure out the closest bakery to base, or if they can deliver the cake. All they have to do is contact the USO and ask about Operation Birthday Cake! USO Hawaii offers a unique program that allows families to celebrate their service members birthday’s from an ocean away. Please read the requirements below, and fill out our online form and allow USO to do the rest.
TOP SECRET MISSION: Surprise your loved one with a cake for their birthday through our Operation Birthday cake program. We will even set-up delivery and take pictures!
REQUIREMENTS: The requester must be located off-island at the time of the request. The birthday cake recipient must be stationed in, or TDY/TAD to Hawaii. This program is intended for service members who are located on island without family members. Please make your request at least two-weeks in advance to allow for coordination.
