Lowe’s teamed with the USO on Saturday to host the Lowe’s Grill of Honor at Nationals Park in Washington. The home improvement giant invited nearly 750 troops and families for an afternoon of fun that featured a grilling competition between selected “Grill Sergeants” judged by a group that included actress Brooklyn Decker and “The Voice” host Carson Daly. The event culminated with Lowe’s donating $100,000 to the USO.
The USO’s Joseph Andrew Lee was there to chronicle the event in these photos.
