Although they couldn’t claim a hole-in-one, the DynCorp International team was proud to participate in the 19th Annual USO-Metro/AFCEA-DC Golf Classic: an opportunity to support our troops and promote education.
As in years past, DI was happy to take part in the premier fundraiser, which combined a morning on the links with a serious commitment to two important causes: The USO of Metropolitan Washington and the scholarship competition of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA).
Both a sponsor and a participant at the July 25, 2011 event, DynCorp International shared the fairways at Virginia’s Lansdowne Golf Resort with servicemen and women who are recuperating at local military medical facilities.
“We were honored to spend time with the wounded warriors, as well as support the great work of the USO and this valuable AFCEA education program,” said George Krivo, vice president, Operations and Maintenance, a member of the DI Team that participated in the tournament.
DynCorp International joined other military-friendly businesses including: Microsoft, Dell, Citrix Systems and Quest Software, Inc.

Proceeds from the USO-Metro/AFCEA-DC Golf Classic benefit The USO of Metropolitan Washington and the AFCEA-DC Scholarship Fund.
The USO-Metro/AFCEA-DC Golf Classic is the D.C. area’s premier networking event for communications and electronics professionals. Each year, leading defense contractors from the national capital region, and leaders from the military and federal government get together at the tournament to support the troops and education.
The USO-Metro/AFCEA-DC Golf Classic generates funds to support the troops. Proceeds from the tournament help USO-Metro serve more than 500,000 troops and their local families each year throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Additionally, $10,000 is generated to support the AFCEA-DC Scholarship Fund for students seeking degrees in science, engineering, and mathematics.
