USO centers on wheels offer service members the same kind of support that USO centers provide in an airport or installation location. These mobile centers travel to large events and military exercises to provide a place for service members to relax during downtime, provide services to remote areas without a USO center, and support our centers and the community in times of crisis. Mobile USO’s are fitted with laptops, large screen televisions, video game consoles, Wi-Fi access, casual seating, refrigerators, coffee makers and microwaves. Following Hurricane Sandy, USO staff from North Carolina, Delaware, and Virginia deployed vehicles to the Floyd Bennett Field (aka Tent City) in Brooklyn, New York to support troops assisting the recovery efforts.
In 2016, the USO unveiled its newest Mobile USO that is 38 feet long with three slide outs and a canteen window that will be able to support more service members than its predecessors. It includes two 65-inch TVs, five Xbox gaming systems, internal and external sound systems and is wheelchair-accessible.
