About this Location

The USO sponsors beverages, snacks, and limited games inside the Boise MEPS. During the period of July 1978 to October 1979, Boise was a substation under Salt Lake City MEPS. It subsequently returned to full station status. The Boise MEPS moved from its original location at 1405 Bannock to its location at 1655 Fairview Avenue on February 22, 1981, opening its doors for business on March 2, 1981. On February 12, 1999, the MEPS moved to its newest facility in the Federal building and opened February 16, 1999.

Although the Boise MEPS has seen a lot of changes, our mission remains unchanged. The Boise MEPS processes applicants for enlistment into the military service within its geographical area which is roughly described as extending from the Salmon River, Idaho, in the north, to the Idaho border in the south, bounded in the East by Preston, Idaho, and in the west by LaGrande, Ore. The boundaries encompass 94,539 square miles.

After getting delayed and rerouted and delayed and rerouted, I ended up at Sea-Tac at 0030 with my next flight at 0700. I found the USO and it was a blessing. Your volunteers are exceptional, always making sure we're taken care of. For example, a group of us passed out on the couches. A volunteer went around and tucked us all in with blankets. After a day that made me want to cry, I am so appreciative of what you do for us. Being able to wash my face and brush my teeth made my day bearable!
