USONW Shali Center

A troop lounge, Xbox, computers with free internet, and a deli service breakfast, lunch and dinner for free can all be found at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (on the McChord side) at the USO Northwest Shali Center. Staff and volunteers work within the military community to assist service members, and their families. The center also supports single military members through various programs.

The USONW Shali Center works closely with the base operations staff during troop deployments to distribute individual USO care packages to each and every military member deploying to combat zones through Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Every month we host a No Dough Dinner, which is where a unit gets a delicious meal such as stuffed chicken breasts served with mashed potatoes, and dessert, for free.
