Shali USO Center - JBLM McChord Field

About this Location

Our USO Shali Center is strategically located adjacent to the Troop Holding building and the Passenger Air Terminal on McChord Field at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. USO-Northwest staff and volunteers work closely with base operations in order to provide assistance with troop deployments, homecomings, and care package distribution. Our Shali Center provides troops sequestered in the troop holding area access to the center’s lounge, a full-service canteen, computers and the Internet, free WI-FI access, big screen TVs and Xbox gaming area. In addition, the USO Shali Center hosts free monthly “No Dough” Dinners offering free hot meals before pay day to military personnel and their families. Our USO Shali Center serves more than 50,000 deploying troops annually.

Who Can Use the USO?

Occasionally, veterans or military retirees contact us to tell us they couldn’t get into a USO airport center because they are not active-duty military. As much as we’d like to open our doors to all those who have honorably served, we have limited space and financial resources.
Please reference the USO Worldwide Admissions Policy

Interested in Volunteering at the USO?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the USO Shali Center, one of the busiest on-installation Centers in the USA. If you would like to help keep our doors open and say thank you to our military and their families, then become a USO volunteer!

Please fill out the Online Volunteer Application. After the initial screening process you may be asked to come in for an interview and orientation. We will then schedule you for training and get you acclimated to our amazing team.

Thank you so much, during the COVID stay at home order, cabin fever was setting in. This was a great way to get out with the family and get a meal. The sandwiches from Chick-fil-A were great. The USO provides great food and great people, so awesome.
