USO-Metro’s Stars and Stripes Benefit for the Troops is a networking fundraiser that brings together industry professionals, business and community leaders, USO supporters, and military heroes with some of the largest businesses and the government contracting companies located in the Washington-Baltimore region.

It’s also during this red, white and blue patriotic event that we recognize our Circle of Stars - an elite group of top sponsors - in conjunction with the Stars and Stripes festivities.

This USO retro themed event benefits USO-Metro’s vital support programs for the area’s service members and their families, including support of the injured, ill and recovering. Join us in supporting our troops and their families on October 18, 2018. Your support will help thousands of military members and their families living and traveling throughout the Washington-Baltimore region. USO-Metro services include programs for transitioning service members, military spouses, children with deployed parents located within the National Capital Region, family engagement programs, holiday programming and much more.

This year USO-Metro is especially excited to welcome soon-to-be graduates and graduates of USO-Metro’s Project Next S.T.E.P. (Service Member Transition Education Program). This is a tremendous opportunity for these transitioning active duty service members to hone their networking skills and mix and mingle with some of the top companies with headquarters in the Washington-Baltimore region.
