USO Hawaii connects service members with family, home, and country. USO Hawaii operates out of 6 locations in Oahu and Hawai’i.
The USO is not part of the federal government. A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection. We rely solely on the support and generosity from the local community in the way of volunteers, sponsorship and donations in order to deliver our mission. We seek corporate sponsors to support the men and women stationed in Hawaii. If you are interested in sponsoring USO Hawaii, please contact Juliet Bucayu-Domingo, USO Hawaii Area Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This USO center can be service members first and last stop on the island.

USO Schofield Pathfinder Transition USO Schofield Pathfinder Transition office opened in September of 2018 to provide a unique service to transitioning service members and spouses. There is an estimated 10,000 service members transition out of the military each year from Hawaii. Each transition from military to civilian life is unique, and USO Pathfinder is there to help service members and military spouses through the process. Whether an individual needs help finding a civilian job that suits their skills and interest, securing financial stability, researching education options, taking advantage of their GI Bill, utilizing their VA Home Loan or any other veteran programs, maintaining family strength and personal wellness through the process, or more - participants will get a personalized Action Plan and one-on-one support from a USO Pathfinder Scout.
USO Hawaii also provides outreach to all other military bases on island to include Coast Guard Stations Barber’s Point and Sand Island, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and Ft Shafter. With the help of over 300 volunteers and 16 staff, we support over 200,000 service members and families on Hawaii.
