United Service Organizations (USO) of Illinois will celebrate the opening of its newest USO Center facility on Rock Island Arsenal. The new center is poised to be a key resource for thousands of Quad-Cities area military and military families as it will sponsor programs and services specially focused to support and enhance the quality of their lives. The USO Rock Island Grand Opening Celebration will feature USO Santa Claus, USO Holiday Carolers and a special performance of “Tales of Winter” presented by The Putnam Museum as part of USO Discovery Kids programming. More than 200, including area military and representatives from local government, civic and commerce organizations, are expected to attend the event.
USO Centers are a “Home Away from Home” for active duty military and offer reading libraries, free Wi-Fi access, lounge facilities, computers, phone, snacks and TV/DVD/Video Games. The USO of Illinois serves over 300,000 active duty, guard and reserve military and military families throughout Illinois and the Midwest region with over 300 programs and services offered year-round, and USO Center facilities at Navy Pier, Midway Airport, Great Lakes Naval Station, O’Hare Terminal 2, USO American Airlines Cyber Canteen at O’Hare Terminal 3 and now the Rock Island Arsenal.
