Mission

Since 1941, around the world and right here at home, the USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.


Organization Overview

Bob Hope USO provides USO services, programming and outreach at six centers and dozens of military installations across 51,000 square miles in Southern and Central California, from San Luis Obispo to the San Diego County Line. An independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating under a charter from USO, Inc., we operate centers at LAX, Ontario International Airport, Orange County at John Wayne Airport, Palm Springs International Airport, Military Entrance Processing Station Los Angeles and at March ARB Deployment Center. Although Congressionally chartered, we are not a government agency and rely entirely on contributions from patriotic Americans and philanthropic corporations and organizations. Each year, we provide direct service to over 250,000 members of the military and their families.
