The USS Tulsa Support Committee
The USS Tulsa Support Committee is committed to giving back to and supporting the crew of the USS Tulsa through the Morale, Welfare and Recreation fund. The MWR is an important part of the U.S. Military operations. They believe when well-being is a priority, military families are strong and service members are mission-ready. Navy MWR programs are operated by “non-appropriated funds,” or by the proceeds that they earn rather than by tax dollars.
