About this Location

“On the road again” is the motto of the team at USO Alaska as they aim to offer USO services to all military throughout the vast and remote bases and installations.

While our centers at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER), Fort Wainwright, Eielson Air Force Base and Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) Anchorage served 8,381 service members and their families, we went where we were needed by air, boat and even snow machine to reach all our military with our USO programs and services.

With 27 military locations across 663,000 square miles, whether catching a C-17 to fly out to Bethel, Alaska, or taking a two-day journey by land and sea to Cordova, Alaska, the team is ready to support service members and military families, not matter where their journey takes them.

In 2021, the USO Alaska team made it their mission to provide opportunities for engagement with every service member in the state of Alaska by supporting outlying military communities with USO programming, virtual interactions and a lasting presence.

With a network of 150 dedicated volunteers who provided 6,346 hours of their time each and every day, along with the small but mighty staff, the USO Alaska team delivered 66,963 service instances to our military heroes and their families. The need for volunteers continues to grow with an ever-increasing need for our services across our large geographic service area.

“Thank you so much for all that the USO does for families, especially during this very interesting time we live in... We moved here a year ago, ahead of my husband. We knew no one and could not live in military housing due to our dog, so we felt very isolated. It felt very lonely before we started coming to the USO. Thank you for being there for us, especially during that difficult transition. We really appreciate all that you do to support families!"
