Bob Hope USO Palm Springs
Our Mission Since 1941, around the country and around the world, the USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and their families. Organization Overview Bob Hope USO provides USO services and programming to members of the military and their families throughout Southern California, north of San Diego. An independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating under a charter from USO, Inc., we provide morale and recreational services to members of the U.S. Military. We operate airport centers at LAX, Ontario International Airport, Orange County at John Wayne Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. We also provide USO programming and outreach services at military installations throughout the region. Although Congressionally chartered, we are not a government agency and rely entirely on contributions from patriotic Americans and philanthropic corporations and organizations. Each year, we provide direct service to over 100,000 military members, their families and eligible military retirees in Southern California. General Information Our complimentary sandwiches, snacks and beverages may seem like small comforts, but to our grateful military personnel and their dependent family members, visiting the USO means they need not wait in the often impersonal airport terminals frequently for many hours. It also means they have available for their exclusive use an array of facilities and services that include recreation areas, secure luggage storage, a theater with wide screen TV and a library of literally hundreds of current and classic films on DVD and video, a state-of-the-art Internet computer center, a fully-stocked free lending library, a well-equipped "Family Room" where children can relax and play games--or simply a place to take a nap. There are separate shower facilities for men and women, and a "quiet room" where exhausted troops are able to rest undisturbed for a few hours. Complimentary phone calls throughout the country on our "I-Freedom" telephone system allow our troops an opportunity to phone home during their visit.
