Kansas City MEPS

About this Location

USO Missouri supports MEPS in Kansas City and St. Louis. What is MEPS? MEPS stands for Military Entrance Processing Station, where new recruits go for in-processing. It is a Defense Department joint-service organization staffed with military and civilian professionals who determine applicants’ physical qualifications, aptitude, and moral standards, as set by each branch of military service. What do recruits do at MEPS? They take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test, get their physical exams, select their new job in the service, and officially swear the oath of enlistment. The entire process takes about two days, and processing starts early—some will wait for their ship-out date and others will embark to basic training immediately after their time at MEPS! There can be a long wait time too, so the USO is there with snacks and drinks to make it a little easier for our newest service members.

A "tip of the officer's cap" to the USO and its team of volunteers and employees. I've had to make use of USO facilities on occasion at airports and elsewhere, and the comforts and services of the USO always makes military personnel (and sometimes their dependents) feel a taste of "home" in their military travels. Much thanks for all the USO and their staffs do for our military and our nation!
