USO Experience Virginia Beach (VB) 2022 is a weeklong summer event taking place June 1 – 5, 2022 in the Virginia Beach area, and consists of a series of athletic, recreational, and social activities for service members and their families, combined with educational and entertaining public elements.

USO Experience VB 2022 social and educational events facilitate interactions between military and civilians and provide an opportunity for the civilian community to see that our service members are more than brave people keeping them safe. These common unifying experiences between the military service members and civilians let the military know they are supported, valued, and respected by their country.

Activities for service members include Skydiving, Paddleboarding, Horseback Riding, Surfing, Kayaking and more.
