USO Tour!

From September 11, 2015, in the early hours:

USO Tour! I’m happy and excited to announce that I’ll be doing a brief USO tour on bases in the UK and Germany, in company with the lovely Kathleen Antrim and Tess Gerritsen. Operation Thriller V starts in about four hours….

For those non-US fans not familiar with the USO, it’s a private, nonprofit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services. I think we’re recreation.

Will try to share notes and photos as I can—in the meantime, enjoy yourselves!


Webmistress’s note: Sorry, but these U.S.O. appearances were arranged for members of the U.S. military, NOT the general public.

Diana’s confirmed public appearances around the globe are listed and regularly updated at http://www.dianagabaldon.com/appearances.

Also posted on my Facebook page on September 11, 2015 at 2:36 a.m. (MST).

  1. Diana, the Operation Thriller V link is not working; when and where will you be? Are you coming to the Stuttgart area?

    • Dave, see the above note that was added. These appearances for the U.S.O. were for the U.S. military personnel, not the general public.

      • I’m a DOD civil servant and eligible.

      • Dave Peck,

        I am also military personnel in the Stuttgart area. Before the event, I spoke with our USO about details regarding this fantastic opportunity. They explained that MWR was responsible for the details, advertising, web link connections and other specifics. Unfortunately, I was not able to learn any of the information that I needed to participate in the event. Were you able to connect with anyone who could give you specifics about how to participate? I would have traveled across Europe for this!!!

  2. Got up too early for a warm South Texas morning, so relaxed in my “mama chair” with my well-worn copy of Voyager. Did that random thing when you open the book just any old page and start reading – a perfect start to another day. Thank you, DG!

  3. What a wonderful, rewarding experience this will be! So excited for you and your audience! Enjoy every minute.

  4. Diana will be at RingCon in Germany from November 6-8, for those who missed the USO tour workshop on 9/11. More details are on her appearances webpage at :


    Or check the RingCon home page for up-t0-date information.

    It looks like a great convention.
