Board members play a critical role in enabling USO-Metro to continue providing vital programs and expeditionary services free of charge to more than 500,000 military in the Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. region all in an effort to enhance quality of life and to support the resilience of military members and their families.
