ANDREW W. MELLON AUDITORIUM

1301 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC 20240

Celebrating 30 years of service to military families, United Through Reading offers service members the opportunity to be video-recorded reading books to their children at home. The program creates an emotional connection between parents and their children, encourages literacy, and eases the difficulties of deployments and separations.

"This. Was. Amazing. Our 2-year-old stopped in his tracks the moment I pressed play and daddy popped up on the screen. The book he read was perfect and is a new favorite. THANK YOU!"

The Tribute to Military Families is a centerpiece of United Through Reading’s presence in Washington, DC, and brings 350 corporate executives, senior military leaders, members of Congress, and military families together for a special evening that includes remarks from a military guest of honor, heartfelt stories from beneficiary families about the impact of United Through Reading, and tributes to our honorees.
