USO New England and Vows Bridal Outlet teamed up for the “G.I. Gown Giveaway,” ensuring that over 300 women received a gorgeous wedding gown…for free! The first of what will hopefully become many annual events, this giveaway was especially meaningful for USO New England Executive Director Jean Mallon. "We wanted each bride to feel special,” Mallon said. “Not only is it an exciting practical gift for military families and brides-to-be, but it also boosts morale.” Check out a photo gallery of the gown giveaway goings on:
