USO Camp Marmal

Phone: 301-880-7686

The USO at Camp Marmal is our northernmost center in Afghanistan. Set against the backdrop of the Hindu Kush Mountains, Camp Marmal has primarily existed as a German base. When American troops arrived, they set up tents for everything from the mess hall to the living quarters and it remains that way to this day.

The USO was invited to Camp Marmal to boost the morale of the troops stationed there who, prior to our arrival, had nothing to do outside of work. With the hard work of a dedicated group of soldiers, the USO building was constructed to offer a welcome alternative to sitting in your bunk after work every day. Now the center is always busy with an event taking place nearly every night. From poker and pool tournaments to karaoke competitions and video games matchups, our service members finally have a place to call their own.
