OUR MISSION. YOUR PASSION. A CAREER THAT MATTERS.

For over 75 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.

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 unstaffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.

A career at the USO is unlike any other - it is the perfect intersection of work and passion. Being a part of the USO affords you the opportunity to become an integral part of a vital non-profit that has aided our country’s military and its families for over 75 years. We are an organization that has earned the respect of our servicemen and women by building a reputation of honor, dedication and excellence.

We couldn’t deliver this commitment without a host of steadfast employees and volunteers around the world. Working for the USO means being able to lend your expertise and talents to serve those who sacrifice so much for our country while embodying our pledge to be always by their side.
