Our Columbia Metro Airport Center is a welcoming "home away from home" for troops and their families traveling in and out of the State of South Carolina. Each month, our volunteers and staff serve nearly 7,000 troops that come through our center's doors. In addition to the service and support that we provide at the Columbia Metro Airport, USO South Carolina also supports monthly outreach programs to the surrounding installations: Joint National Guard Base McEntire, South Carolina National Guard throughout the state, Shaw Air Force Base, McCrady Training Center, and Fort Jackson. We stay extremely busy being so close to Fort Jackson, as it is the largest and most active Initial Training Entry Center within the United States Army, responsible for training 50 percent of all soldiers and 70 percent of all female soldiers entering the Army each year.
USO Centers are provided for the comfort and convenience of all military personnel- Active Duty, Reserve and Guard- and their family members. We must prioritize limited space and resources at our Centers to support these primary constituents. However, at the discretion of the Director, military retirees and their family members also may visit this Center on a space-available basis depending on operation requirements.
