DynCorp International is proud to support the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro) as a gold sponsor of its 2015 Annual Awards Dinner. The event is USO-Metro’s largest fundraiser for the year and proceeds directly benefit its programs to support military personnel and their families in the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Md., metropolitan areas. DI was also a sponsor of last year’s annual event and is a top corporate partner to USO-Metro.
This year’s event, taking place on March 24, 2015, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va., will recognize individuals who have exhibited extraordinary dedication to supporting U.S. service members. The event will also feature a special salute to Congressional Medal of Honor recipients.
The USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore is the largest center chartered by USO. They support the nearly 300,000 military members and their families living in the area and the more than 150,000 service members that travel through the region’s local airports. USO-Metro serves through ten locations and a deployable Mobile USO unit and also provides services at area military hospitals.
USO-Metro is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization chartered by Congress, and dedicated to “serving those who serve, and their families” in Washington D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. It is through the financial support of individuals and organizations in the local community that USO-Metro is able to fulfill its mission. With the help of thousands of devoted volunteers, USO-Metro provides programs and services including holiday programs like Turkeys for Troops and Project USO Elf, emergency housing and food assistance, and caring for our wounded, ill and injured troops and their caregivers.
