The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
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.
I was scheduled to volunteer at an event on 5/31/2018. I attended the training scheduled by their office but found out they scheduled the wrong training. I was told the night before I could not volunteer as scheduled.
