USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro) is excited to announce the reopening of its USO Quantico-West Center on June 15, 2020. The 3,500 sq.ft. USO Center opened with great fanfare on March 9, 2020 with the help of NFL greats Terry Bradshaw and Rob Gronkowski but was forced to shut down just six days later due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
To celebrate its reopening, USO Quantico-West provided Mission BBQ lunch to 270 Marines as part of its monthly #MissionMonday program.
Following CDC guidelines, guests frequenting the USO Center are required to wear a face covering while maintaining social distance of at least six feet from others. Most on-site programming will take place on and around the Center’s large outdoor deck.
During the COVID-19 shutdown, USO Quantico-West experienced tremendous success creating and executing virtual programming in an effort to engage service members and their families. Some of the Center’s most popular virtual programs include its Virtual Book Club and Netflix’s Movie and Trivia Nights. Recognizing that it may be awhile until the Center is operating at full capacity, USO Quantico-West plans to continue many of its virtual programming via Quantico’s Facebook @QuanticoUSO.
Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday, 8:00AM to 4:00PM | Closed on Saturday and Sunday until further notice.
