Founded more than 75 years ago by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the United Service Organization (USO) is a congressionally chartered, private organization that provides services to members of the United States military and their families. The organization was created through the union of several charitable organizations, including the Salvation Army, the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Christian Associations, the National Catholic Community Services, the National Travelers Aid Association and the National Jewish Welfare Board.

In addition to operating over 160 service centers around the world, the USO maintains a Mobile USO Program. The mobile program acts as a center on wheels and provides similar services to the other 160 centers such as laptop access, televisions, video games, internet access, and food and drinks. In 2014, the Mobile USO Program traveled to 105 events and served more than 35,000 individuals.
