ProgramsThe USO works in more than 180 locations and offers more than 20 programs to keep service members connected to the people, places and things they love.
Service Members Everywhere
Anywhere They Go
The USO provides programs and services at more than 160 locations worldwide. Whether they're deployed to a war zone or stationed overseas, service members are only a request or a visit away from receiving a range of USO services. And when they can't physically visit one of our far-flung locations, we can come to them in the form of USO2GO or even Mobile USO.
Keeping Them Connected
Since 1941, the USO has kept our military men and women connected to their families, homes and country no matter where they are or under what conditions they serve.
Transitioning Service Members
The USO Transition 360 Alliance
When Americans complete their military service, the USO is there to support the transition back to civilian life. Those leaving the military need a plan to reintegrate into the communities they are returning to, a civilian career path, and a strong family. The USO Transition 360 Alliance exists to help the nearly half a million service members and their military families who start the process of transitioning out of the military each year. This alliance of five best-in-class service organizations focuses on three key pillars of a successful transition back into civilian life: develop a plan for the future, pursue new career paths, and strengthen their families and community networks. Designed to help the young, single service member as well as the 25-year careerist with a family, the USO Transition 360 Alliance is a roadmap to help navigate whatever transition journey lies ahead.
Wounded, Ill and Injured Service Members
A Continuum of Care
Recovering from a battlefield injury, training accident or even a long illness is a daunting prospect for service members and their loved ones. The USO provides a backbone of support. From our Warrior Center in Landstuhl Germany, to our two USO Warrior and Family Centers at major military hospital facilities in the Washington, D.C., area, service members and their families get the things they need in a nurturing environment. Also, our Caregivers Seminars provide vital links to information, programming and community support for the healing families.
Families of the Fallen
After the Ultimate Sacrifice
When service members make the ultimate sacrifice for their country, we are there for their families. The USO has supported every dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base since March 1991, often making special travel accommodations for grieving families in transit at our airport centers around the world. The USO also supports the families through partnerships with organizations like the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and Fisher House.
