US military-related product being sold in South Africa?

Went shopping at the local Spar (in Johannesburg, South Africa) and there was a whole display with these cooldrinks. I remember the Mello Yellow brand from my childhood; it disappeared from the shelves years ago. This is branded in kinda Us military livery, with the USO mark on it. So it raises some questions:

  1. What does the branding mean, and for what is it intended?
  2. What is USO?
  3. Where else in the world - outside the US - is it distributed, and why?
  4. Why is it here, on our shores?

Just curious. Are we soon to be invaded, and these are meant to give the occupying troops a taste of home :-) ? Bought one and it tasted a bit like Twist.
