- How We Help
The USO provides programs, entertainment and services at more than 200 USO locations worldwide, including Afghanistan, Djibouti, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Germany, Italy, Japan, Iraq, South Korea and the United States.
In 2016, USO centers were visited more than 7 million times by service members and their families. USO centers provide a warm and comforting place where service members can connect to loved ones via Internet or phone, play a video game, catch a movie, have a snack or just put their feet up and relax.
Currently, the four USO centers in Afghanistan collectively average more than 25,000 visits a month while our two centers in Kuwait collectively average more than 39,500 visits monthly.
