Military Spouses

USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore brought several military spouses to Patriot Point for a retreat over the weekend of July 23. The group, which included some women who were new to the military lifestyle, enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking, taking a dip in the refreshing water and all that Patriot Point had to offer.

“This retreat came at a great time since some were feeling overwhelmed with moving and having young children,” said USO-Metro program specialist Amy Altersitz. “One woman is a veteran and married to an active-duty service member and she expressed that this is a beautiful retreat for military families. She hopes to return with her husband to Patriot Point. [Patriot Point property manager Tim Mitchell] was great with everyone as usual.”
