The USO (United Service Organizations) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide morale, welfare and recreation-type services to U.S. military personnel. Since before World War II, the USO has been a bridge between the American people and our men and women in the armed services.
The USO currently operates more than 130 centers worldwide, including ten mobile canteens located in the continental United States and overseas. Overseas centers are located in Germany, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Qatar, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Guam, and Kuwait. Service members and their families visit USO centers more than 5.3 million times each year.
Whether helping a soldier with a connecting flight, distributing a care package, providing information, or welcoming home troops from deployment, volunteers are vital to the success of the USO's mission.
