We are proud to announce that the USO of North Carolina at Albert J. Ellis opened its doors on October 5, 2015. As Marines travel by air in Jacksonville, the friendly faces at the USO are here to greet you. Marines who are traveling to and from Jacksonville can enjoy the USO and feel more welcome, while having a place to relax.
There are volunteers at the location ready to assist with more information about programs and resources that have been made available. Volunteers at the OAJ center, can direct marines and other military travelers to the USO of North Carolina Jacksonville Center, where troops will be able to relax, shower, have their uniforms ironed and get “squared away” before reporting.
Our new USO center at OAJ features a television, computers, and comfortable lounge chairs, as well as snacks and drinks. The troops can even take nap after a day of travel. It is OAJ’s way to provide an extra level of service to our military travelers, and a way to thank them for their service.
