Lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families

USO Las Vegas provides a home away from home to all of the nearly 75,000 Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, and their families stationed in Southern Nevada. Through two lounges at McCarran International Airport, USO Las Vegas offers active duty military and their families free non-alcoholic beverages, food, phone cards, Internet and computer usage, and a movie lounge for relaxation and entertainment. USO Las Vegas also offers morale-boosting and family-strengthening programs such as USO Las Vegas’ United Through Reading Program, which enables troops to record a DVD of themselves reading a book for their family to enjoy while they are deployed. Other programs include deployment and redeployment support to help servicemen and women adjust to the duty ahead, resiliency training for families facing multiple deployments, discreet and compassionate escorts and other support for Families of the Fallen, as well as passenger terminal assistance for troops and loved ones alike. Since 2010, we have served more than 120,000 troops and their families.
