Most of us have heard of the USO—the United Services Organization—and the wonderful things it does for our military in wartime. But did you know the USO has an important peacetime mission as well? Join us for a tour of the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir. During this tour, you will see the largest USO facility and learn how it helps provide a welcome interlude and activities for those men and women who serve in our military and their families. You’ll also learn about a unique mission of the USO in its support of the wounded warriors. Following the USO tour, we will go to the Fort Belvoir Officers’ Club for a plated lunch in our own private room overlooking the Potomac River and its beautiful fall foliage. Those who sign up will be sent a menu selection. A fee of $54, covering bus transportation costs and driver tip, is payable to OLLI at time of registration. The bus will leave promptly at 9:30 from Fair Oaks Mall parking lot 57, which is outside the circular road in front of ManTech Corp. Please be on the bus no later than 9:15. Estimated time of return is 3:00. Registration for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis.
