BETHESDA, Md.-The culmination of years of work is just one weekend away.
The ribbon will officially be cut Tuesday at the USO Warrior and Family Center at Naval Support Activity Bethesda - the home Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. More than 100 Department of Defense officials, donors, special guests, and - of course - recovering troops and their family members will attend.
The center - which is the sister structure to the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Va. - will be a much-needed home away from home for wounded, ill and injured troops and their families and caregivers.
Check out the photos above, take a look at the work this of our generous partners - like A. James Clark and Northrop Grumman - who made the building possible and see this item on the NFL Sports Lounge we published earlier this week. And don’t forget to check USO.org on Monday and Tuesday for coverage of the opening.
