Mission

Our Mission

The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

For over 77 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.

Organization Overview

Bob Hope USO provides USO services, programming and outreach at six centers and dozens of military installations across 51,000 square miles in Southern and Central California, from San Luis Obispo to the San Diego County Line.

A 501c3 non-profit organization operating centers around the world including at LAX, Ontario International Airport, Orange County at John Wayne Airport, Palm Springs International Airport, Military Entrance Processing Station Los Angeles and at March ARB Deployment Center.
