DynCorp International (DI) has been named to USO of Metropolitan Washington’s (USO-Metro’s) 2013 Circle of the Stars. This elite award is bestowed on the top-level corporate supporters of USO-Metro’s important mission to lift the spirits of military service members and their families.
“We are incredibly proud to be once again honored by USO-Metro, whose programs positively impact so many of our local military personnel and their families,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO of DynCorp International. “Being able to provide corporate support, as well as hands-on support through volunteer opportunities, has become an important part of the DI culture.”
DynCorp International will be recognized at the 10th Annual Stars and Stripes Night, a fundraiser that brings together USO-Metro supporters, members of the business community, wounded heroes from the area military hospitals, and local celebrities in an exciting New York City atmosphere. The focus, as with every USO-Metro event, will be on support for the service members and their families, and the broad spectrum of programs USO-Metro provides for the U.S. Armed Forces.
DynCorp International will be named to the Circle of Stars at the Four-Star level, which is the highest level honored by the organization. The Circle of Stars presentation will be the centerpiece of the night, highlighting the critical value of corporate supporters such as DynCorp International.
“We truly appreciate that DynCorp International is an active and generous supporter of USO-Metro,” said Elaine Rogers, president, USO-Metro. “We couldn’t provide the broad range of programs we deliver without the generous and incredible support of DynCorp International and our other corporate donors.”
