USO Caregiver Retreat

USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore brought a group of caregivers of wounded, ill and injured service members to Patriot Point this past weekend. The group had so much fun during their stay that only suggestion for next time is to make their stay longer!

Patriot Point property manager Tim Mitchell gave the group time to explore the property after their arrival, then they loaded up and headed to the legendary Old Salty’s for dinner. It was too windy for a bonfire, so the s’mores had to be oven-baked. The next day included kayaking and paddling the calm waters of Parsons and Slaughters creeks, art, yoga, massages courtesy of USO-Metro partner Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services and a tasty and healthy lunch from Kelly at nearby Emily’s Produce.

“The caregivers really enjoyed their time there,” USO-Metro manager of resiliency programs Ashy Palliparambil wrote. “Thank you for all that you do.”
