The United Through Reading program allows deployed and deploying service members to connect with their family through reading. Service members chose a book to read aloud to a video camera, and once complete the USO Northwest will send the book and DVD to the family once the service member has deployed. This program is available at all of our centers and the Mobile Canteen.

Each brick will be part of the Patriot's Wall at the new USO Northwest SeaTac Center, scheduled to open in 2014. Your donation will help us build a 7,000-square-foot center designed to support the thousands of military personnel traveling through SeaTac Airport each month. Thank you for your donation to our Enduring Support.

Construction has begun on the new USO Northwest center at Portland International Airport (PDX)! Once complete the center will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.. The center is located on the Mezzanine level of the airport, before going through security. To make a donation to support the PDX Center, click here.
