Join our volunteer Army of Gratitude

Over 90 percent of our services and events are accomplished through volunteer efforts. The USONW maintains a volunteer base of 300 individuals from communities around Washington State. Our Army of Gratitude distinguishes our organization and guarantees donations go directly to our services and programs benefitting service members and their families.

Since our establishment in 1966, the USO Northwest volunteers have served 4 million active duty service members, veterans and dependents. With our center at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, our Mobile and efforts to expand, volunteers are very important. Whatever your time commitment or talents, there is a volunteer opportunity for you.
