The USO Gulf Coast Lounge at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport supports our nation’s service members and military community by providing a warm welcome and comfortable travel experience. The USO Lounge offers a nice, quiet place to rest, complete with refreshments and free Internet service for military men and women and their families while traveling.

The USO Lounge is currently open seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and maintained through USO Gulf Coast staff and a number of dedicated volunteers.

“The USO Gulf Coast is eternally grateful to the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport for their support of the mission of the USO at a time of uncertainty for our entire community,” says USO Gulf Coast Executive Director Felice Kelly Gillum. “With the support of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport and the local community, the USO was able to provide unique services to more than 150,000 service members and their families in 2020.”
