Connecting America’s Service Members to Family, Home and Country

This campaign is a once in a generation opportunity for the USO at LAX to become a world class USO airport center.

/ 150


Our LAX Capital Campaign has raised $4.3 million to support our relocation to a new USO Center at LAX and help us carry out our mission to strengthen America's military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

The new USO at LAX transitioned us from a 3,400 square foot center housed in temporary trailers for over 18 years, to a new 7,100 square foot state-of-the-art USO Center built for anticipated growth in air travel to support our country's troops and their families. Its new location in the ground floor of the iconic Theme Building at LAX opened in July 2018.

One of only six USO centers in the world open 24/7 as a welcoming "safe haven" for troops and their families, the USO at LAX will serve over 100,000 service members and military families annually.

With a multi-billion-dollar modernization and improvement plan underway at LAX, the old USO Center is set to be demolished to house infrastructure for the new LAX Automated People Mover.

Join our efforts, so we can honor our service members and their families and continue to support the tens of thousands of deploying troops, their families and our military community at the nation's second busiest airport.
