Bob Hope USO at MEPS El Segundo

Each year, over 200,000 young Americans raise their right hand and swear to protect and defend our constitution at Military Entrance Processing Station around the country. The busiest one is MEPS Los Angeles in El Segundo. A mile from LAX, our volunteers provide a relaxing lounge area with complimentary snacks and beverages to the applicants of the military as they wait several hours to complete the enlistment process and wait to swear in at the Military Entrance Processing Station.
