USO Southeast delivers USO services, programming and outreach at 44 USO center locations, 7 USO Pathfinder® Transition Program locations, and dozens of military installations across ten states; Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky, providing over 1.5 Million service connections to members of the military and their families.
The USO serves the men and women of the U.S. military throughout their service — from the moment they join, through their deployments, and as they transition out of the military. Our scope, scale, presence, reach, knowledge, and longstanding close working relationship with the military gives the USO an unparalleled ability to meet a wide range of needs of service members and their families. Our impact is reflected in more than 12.7 million annual interactions at 270+ USO centers and through programs and services around the world.
While we have served the U.S. military for over 82 years, this current time period is like no other. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, the USO quickly pivoted resources across the world in an approach that helped care for military members and their families, while also aiding in reducing the spread of the virus.
As the nation’s leading organization serving our men and women in the military, the USO remained in close alignment with military commands to support the emergent needs of service members and their families. For our troops and military families, the pandemic created additional hardships for individuals who were already sacrificing so much while they continue to serve the country and carry out missions around the world.
The USO will always remain committed to expanding access to the USO for service members and their families by increasing service connections, delivering mobile programming to states and areas without physical USO centers, and boosting transition services for our military and their spouses through our virtual access. We are the Force Behind the Forces.
