      Home away from home: A new USO center opens at Newark Liberty International Airport

      Between flight delays, long TSA lines and jetlagged travelers rushing to catch connecting flights, most airports don’t exactly have a reputation for being the most warm and welcoming of places.

      But that’s about to change for military service members visiting New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport, whether they’re preparing to deploy or waiting for a loved one to arrive home.

      On July 21, the USO, with support from Johnson & Johnson, opened its newest comfort center for active service members and their families at the airport’s Terminal B. With the help of volunteers, the center is expected to eventually be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and offer everything from refreshments to a computer station and a children’s play area.


      Caring for those who care for their country

      Johnson & Johnson is the Official Healthcare Partner of the USO, so helping the new comfort center open its doors is just one way that the company has shown a commitment to improving the wellbeing of American service members and their families.

      Among other programs, the company has also provided support for the USO Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda, Maryland, which hosts service members being treated at the nearby Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, along with their family members.

      “We hope that the USO Center at Newark Liberty International Airport will reinforce just how much all of us at Johnson & Johnson value military families’ service and sacrifices,” says Susan Can, Senior Director, Johnson & Johnson Corporate Equity & Partnerships.
