Acting as USO centers on wheels, Mobile USOs offer service members in the United States the same great supports that are found in USO airport or installation locations. These large, mobile centers travel to big events and military exercises to provide a place for troops to relax during down time, providing USO services to areas without a brick and mortar USO center and support our centers and the community in times of crisis. Each Mobile USO offers laptops, large screen televisions, video game consoles, Wi-Fi access, casual seating, refrigerators, coffee makers and microwaves. The Mobile USO provides onsite support including climate control, video games, movies and free Wi-Fi to keep the troops connected to loved ones back home.
In 2017, the USO expanded the mobile fleet operation to include two new, 38-foot-long vehicles, as well as two new Sprinter vans designed to provide support to smaller exercises and events. The two large vehicles both include three slide-out sections, a large canteen window, two 65-inch TVs, five Xbox gaming systems, Wi-Fi, internal and external sound systems, a food-prep area and wheelchair accessibility. The Sprinter vans are stationed in Texas and Alaska, providing support to communities with large military populations and geographic limitations. In 2018, the USO plans to add a new Sprinter van to serve California.
