USO Missouri greatly appreciates all of the hard work and dedication of over 600 volunteers who make our USO centers and programs a success! Armed with a desire to give aid and comfort, these volunteers range in age from 18-90 and in experience from the college freshman to the retired CEO.

USO Missouri has many volunteer options available to serve the troops:

  • The first option is our Terminal 1 airport facility. This facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This operation utilizes volunteers to fill five shifts per day and also relies upon substitutes when a regular volunteer cannot make their shift. Volunteers also pick up food donations for USO Missouri.

  • USO Missouri in Fort Leonard Wood serves all of the trainees who are stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood. For more information on this center, contact the Ft. Leonard Wood USO at 573-329-2039.

  • Special event volunteers assist and support day-of operations of events that keep the USO running smoothly and efficiently.

Volunteers participate in all services of USO Missouri, from the full-service canteen to the luggage check room. There is always work to be done, particularly keeping the facilities neat and clean for the military and their families. Special events, projects and short-term projects round out the volunteer experience.

Complete training is provided, including general orientation, registration desk, canteen and Mobile USO training. The first step in becoming a USO Missouri volunteer is to complete the volunteer application.
