NEWARK - Members of the armed forces will have a refuge at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport.

A USO center is opening at the airport on Thursday.

The 2,000-square-foot center in Terminal B offers traveling service members a place to connect with loved ones by the internet or telephone. They also can play a video game, catch a movie, have a cup of coffee and a snack or just relax.

The new USO center will be open seven days a week every day of the year.

The USO provides support to active military members and their families including assistance transitioning back into their communities after completion of their service.
