BETHESDA, Md.—The weather is finally warming up on the East Coast. And at Naval Support Activity-Bethesda — home of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center — word is getting out about the new grilling opportunities available on the patio of the recently opened USO Warrior and Family Center.
"We're really excited for spring to really get going here in the D.C. area," said Cheryl Laaker Hall, Vice President of Operations for USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore. "We've had a lot of snow, and I think everybody's just ready to be outside."
In addition to a huge kitchen, the NFL Sports Lounge and a private music and art room, the new 16,217-square-foot center is equipped with multiple gas grills and enough picnic tables to accommodate any size party. The USO Metro staff figures it'll be a huge attraction on a base where outdoor grilling opportunities are limited.
