Last Saturday at Fort Belvoir a group of volunteers congregated to stuff USO Care Packages. This would ordinarily not be an unusual event…except this group was comprised of children 5 to 12-years-old!

These dedicated youngsters gave up their Saturday morning to stuff care packages that will be sent to service members currently deployed in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, and the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

This second-annula event is part of an ongoing celebration of the Month of the Military Child, and was coordinated with support from the USO of Metropolitan Washington and the Military Health System.  We’d like to thank all of the kids who came out for stuffing care packages and for their service - they are all children of deployed and active duty service members.
