About this Location
MEPS LA is the busiest in the nation, swearing-in 12,000 young Americans who go forth to protect and defend the constitution annually. It is the single largest volume facility in the nation, where nearly 5% of all military members start their service. Our doors at MEPS are open every weekday for the brave young men and women who stand, raise their right hand, and vow to protect and serve our nation. Our volunteers provide a stress-free USO center for enlisting service members to enjoy an assortment of games, snacks, beverages, and entertainment. We aim to educate them about the USO and its 200+ worldwide locations upon entry to the military. It is an honor to be there to support them and their families as they start on this new journey in their lives, and have the opportunity to teach them about the mission of the USO and how we will support them through their service.
A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection.

The one thing I’ve learned volunteering at Bob Hope USO is never to make assumptions based on the lack of smile, you never know what they’ve been through, whether they’re coming in from a war zone, separated from their families for a long time … the first thing I do is ask how I can help.George Hobdell, Bob Hope USO, LAX Volunteer Find out how to support USO
