)-- Supporting Soldiers and Their Families
The mission of the USO, “Serving those who serve, and their families,” is achieved through its many programs and services that help build and maintain the morale of the military community. Because the USO is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization, it depends almost solely on the donations of both individuals and corporations like DynCorp International to support service members and their loved ones. USO programs vary from celebrity visits for hospital patients to running a Deployed Family Fun Day; the Golf Classic is just one of many ways the Washington USO office acquires funds to support local soldiers and their families.
Fun and Prizes for a Cause
Along with shirts and goody bags for all those who participated in the golf tournament, several raffles were held and other great prizes given away. These included awards to those lucky enough to make a hole-in-one, to the first- through fourth-place foursomes, to the man and woman making the longest drive and to the man and woman landing a shot closest to the pin.
As an organization that works closely with the brave men and women of the United States military, DynCorp International knows the value of programs that support those in active military service and their families.
