DynCorp International is a sponsor of the 2012 USO of Metropolitan Washington (USO-Metro) Turkeys for Troops holiday program. The Turkeys for Troops program provides junior-enlisted service members and their families living in the Washington-Baltimore region with food baskets filled with all the traditional trimmings for a Thanksgiving feast.
In addition to providing financial support, more than 30 DI team members will serve as volunteers to stuff the holiday food baskets for the military families at Fort Belvoir and Fort Meade military bases.
“We are proud to support the USO-Metro’s important work in supporting our local troops, especially during the holiday season” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO of DynCorp International. “Our team members are honored to be able to play their part in this program that will directly benefit so many in the local military community.”
“DynCorp International has proven to be an incredible supporter of our troops and their families and a dear friend of USO-Metro,” said Elaine Rogers, president and CEO of USO-Metro. “From supporting our Back to School programs, our holiday programs to helping us through sponsoring many of our fundraising events, we always know we can count on DI. They’re an invaluable partner and we’re so appreciative of their support.”
