Liberty Center

Events

We're a home away from home for our active duty, single or unaccompanied sailors.

Our center has recliners and bean bags, a mini movie theater with stadium seating, laptop rentals (with CAC access) and printer access and a video game room. We have hundreds of movies and video games to choose from. You can play pool, ping pong or just chill and use our free WiFi. Every month we have a free dinner night and most weekends we have off base trips to introduce you to Japan. And all service members, who are E5 and below, receive a special discounted rate on all trips as part of our Liberty Blue Jacket program.
