We provide several programs, entertainment, connectivity, baby changing facilities, visitor information and others concierge services free of charge.
Active Duty Military & Families
We offer a variety of programs and services to support the morale, welfare, and recreational needs of troops and their families, free of charge. Through a diverse group of programs offerings, USO volunteers express America’s gratitude and appreciation for the service and sacrifice of Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard, and their families. These programs are available for the entire family and throughout the entire cycle of military service. Additional support is provided for military appreciation and patriotic events, transition workshops, Family Readiness Groups (FRGs), and mobilizations to name a few.
Performing for more than 600,000 troops and family members annually, the USO Show Troupe maintains a broad repertoire of music.
USO Centers on wheels travel to remote locations and areas where military require support during national disasters/tragedies; they offer a comfortable place to relax and connect online with family and the local community.
This program enables troops to record a DVD of themselves reading a book for their family to enjoy while they are facing physical separation.
We offer U.S. and allied ships onsite visitor information services and discounted and complimentary tickets when visiting the Port of New York.
In partnership with SHERRI HILL, USO provides free prom dresses to children of military families.
In partnership with BAE, volunteers distribute holiday decorations, pre-cut trees, and expressions of gratitude and appreciation to military families in preparation for the holiday season.
As a child, the joy of being presented with your first bicycle is unmatched. USO volunteers build bicycles and tricycles for children of military families and distribute them around the country.
