Determine what user account a service is running under

Hello I've attached the code I'm using below.  I just grab all the services, and iterate through them.  What I want to do as I iterate through them is this:
.
.
.
For Each mo In queryCollection
    'If userAccount = myUserAccount then
        'Change the password
    'else
        'do nothing

Next
.
.
.

How can I determine what account each service is running under?  Thanks,

Dim ReturnValue As String = String.Empty
        Dim strComputerName As String = "myComputerName"
        Try
 
            Dim query As ManagementObjectSearcher
            Dim queryCollection As ManagementObjectCollection = Nothing
            Dim co As ConnectionOptions
            Dim oq As System.Management.ObjectQuery
            Dim ms As System.Management.ManagementScope
            Dim mo As ManagementObject
            Dim strQuery As String
 
            strQuery = "SELECT * FROM Win32_Service"
            co = New ConnectionOptions
            ms = New System.Management.ManagementScope("\\" + strComputerName + "\root\cimv2", co)
 
            oq = New System.Management.ObjectQuery(strQuery)
            query = New ManagementObjectSearcher(ms, oq)
            Try
                queryCollection = query.Get()
            Catch e1 As Exception
 
            End Try
            For Each mo In queryCollection
 
            Next
 
 
        Catch ex As Exception
 
        End Try

I've already read through those pages.  I dont see anything there about determining what account a service is running under.  Am I missing something?
