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 2014, Mobile USOs hosted 105 events and served more than 35,000 people. The Mobile USOs also expanded their reach by supporting various National Guard training exercises in remote locations throughout the United States, including Camp Shelby, Mississippi, Camp Raid, South Dakota, Camp Roberts, California, Fort McCoy, Wisconsin and Camp Grayling, Michigan. In addition, the Mobile USO Program continued to support all the Ride2Recovery Challenges, along with a variety of homecoming, deployment, and family day events.
