If you are passionate about supporting America's service members in a real, tangible way, volunteering at the USO is the path for you. The USO has been the nation's leading military support organization since 1941. There are countless ways to volunteer with the USO, through abiding dedication to our service members and their families. Whether you are manning the front desk, cheering our troops at homecoming, helping at an event, or providing a listening ear; our volunteers are the reason soldiers know they can count on the USO.

The primary role of a volunteer is to welcome and serve our service members and their families, and to make them feel at home at our USO Fort Hood locations. Some common duties include greeting and checking-in guests, assisting with center activities and programs, offering food and beverages, maintaining tidiness in the center and supporting staff members as needed, and lots more!

Come be a part of this exciting organization on Fort Hood. Find community and join the Force Behind the Forces!

About USO Fort Hood

Location:

Building 121 761st Tank Battalion Avenue, Fort Hood, TX 76544, US

Mission Statement

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

Description

In 2001, the USO Fort Hood opened its doors on Fort Hood to Military Members and their families. Known for its hospitality services to Active Duty Service Members and their Families primarily in Airports across the nation and even around the world, Fort Hood was the first installation to host a USO Center. Originally located in Building 121 in Room 105, the USO maintained and delivered goodness to the troops from a tiny office. In 2006, USO moved into Building 1871 a two story WWII Barracks Structure where it remains today.

Through the years, USO Fort Hood has helped many Soldiers deploy, providing a touch of home right before they leave. The USO Fort Hood has also been there when they return, Welcoming Soldiers home along side their family members. The USO Fort Hood has brought celebrities such as Gary Sinise, Jessica Simpson, Will Smith, Zac Brown Band and a host of other performers who truly support our service members to perform for the Troops and their families at Fort Hood. The USO working alongside MWR recently brought Sesame Street Military Experience Tour on August 1 and 2, 2016 to help military children with issues such as deployments and making new friends.

Our mission here at the USO Fort Hood is to strengthen our service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation. We do this through our Centers and Family Programs - Movies On The Lawn, Family Game Night, and Early Literacy Workshop just to name a few.
