The United Through Reading program allows deployed and deploying service members to connect with their family through reading. Service members chose a book to read aloud to a video camera, and once complete the USO Northwest will send the book and DVD to the family once the service member has deployed. This program is available at all of our centers and the Mobile Canteen.

Each brick will be part of the Patriot's Wall at the new USO Northwest SeaTac Center, scheduled to open in 2014. Your donation will help us build a 7,000-square-foot center designed to support the thousands of military personnel traveling through SeaTac Airport each month. Thank you for your donation to our Enduring Support.

Construction has begun on the new USO Northwest center at Portland International Airport (PDX)! Once complete the center will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.. The center is located on the Mezzanine level of the airport, before going through security. To make a donation to support the PDX Center, click here.

Shali Center continues with No Dough Dinner program

Each month the USO Northwest Shali Center, located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, serves a free meal to service members and their families. The menu changes each month. In March, the 296th Brigade Support Battalion enjoyed philly cheese steak sandwiches, and this April the 42nd Military Police BDE will be served grilled salmon. These meals are possible because of the generous donations made by individuals and companies in 2013.
