Become a Force Behind the Forces(r) today!

The USO of Western PA is headquartered in Moon Township, but we cover the area from the southern PA border, north to Erie and as far east as Johnstown/Altoona. We're looking for volunteers to help provide our services and programs. You will have to attend an orientation session at our office, and you must be able to pass a background check. You must also have a Real ID, U.S. Passport or military ID that will provide access to military installations. Volunteers are required to be able to lift 25 lbs.

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

Since 1941, 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.

Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.

USO airport centers throughout the country offer around-the clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. Our trademark USO tours bring America and its celebrities to service members who are assigned far from home, to entertain them and convey the support of the nation. And our many specialized programs offer a continuum of support to service members throughout their journey of service, from the first time they don the uniform until the last time they take it off.

The USO is not part of the federal government. 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.
