The Green Build
Beyond the Build
Spotlight on the USO
From 32nd Street Naval Station to Camp Pendleton, you don’t have to be a local to
know that San Diego County has deep military roots. The Airport Authority is honoring
that history and the military’s strong, continued presence here in San Diego County
with the construction of a USO center as part of The Green Build.
Nearly 100,000 service members and their families travel through San Diego International
Airport each year. Currently, they are welcomed by the Neil Ash USO Center, which
provides amenities such as a children’s play room, Internet access, coffee bar,
lounge and showers. USO centers around the nation provide our military and their
families with a place to relax and connect with other military service members while
The new USO center will be the largest airport USO center in the nation. Military
families will enjoy a new outdoor area with picnic tables and lawn areas for relaxing,
as well as many other features.
The current USO has been temporarily relocated to the West end of Terminal 1 during
the construction process. For more information about the USO, please call (619)
296-3192. We look forward to welcoming our service members to San Diego and honoring
their service with a new, improved USO.
