The USO Alaska Center and first-of-its-kind USO Wellness Center opened at JBER on Feb. 11, 2016. USO Alaska offers a variety of programming to support the needs of single service members, military couples and families by supplementing existing military programming and offering additional resources, entertainment and activities for Alaska’s military community.
The USO Alaska Center Operations and Programs Manager can assist with deployment/homecoming support, and other programming needs as well as coordinate delivery of in-kind donations.
Anyone interested in volunteering may submit an online volunteer interest form at https://volunteers.uso.org. Just click on the desired USO location to complete the brief online form and a USO staff member will contact you.
