USO/Armed Services YMCA

San Diego USO
San Diego USO continues to offer support and entertainment to those who serve our nation with the same enthusiasm that it did at its opening in 1941.

The goal of San Diego USO is to extend a sense of comfort in an unfamiliar place to all active-duty military and their families. More than 100 volunteers give their time to assist in staffing both centers. These volunteers aid in ensuring American service men and women feel "at home" in San Diego, whether traveling or stationed here.
