Recognition Honors USO-Metro’s Top Corporate Sponsors
DynCorp International is being recognized by the USO of Metropolitan Washington (USO-Metro), and named to USO-Metro’s 2012 Circle of the Stars at the USO Stars and Stripes event benefitting U.S. service members and their families.
DI will be recognized at the Four-Star level, which is the highest level honored by the USO. This elite award is bestowed on the top-level corporate donors who provide generous funding to support USO-Metro’s mission to lift the spirits of military service members and their families.
DI has been a proud supporter of USO-Metro programs such as Project Elf, Operation Back to School and the USO-Metro/AFCEA-DC Golf Classic Fundraiser as a corporate sponsor as well as providing volunteers for events.
“Everywhere the men and women of our military need support, the USO is there,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO of DynCorp International. “And here in the DC-area, USO-Metro’s programs make a huge impact. We feel honored to be able to do our part to support their important work.”
The Annual Stars and Stripes Night is a fundraiser that brings together USO-Metro supporters, members of the business community, wounded heroes from area military hospitals, and other supporters. The focus, as with every USO-Metro event, will be on support for service members and their families, and the broad spectrum of programs USO-Metro provides for the U.S. Armed Forces.
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.”
