USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore recently hosted a group of U.S. Army active-duty service members for a weekend retreat at Patriot Point.
The group included one service-member couple from Fort McNair and another from Fort Belvoir, as well as a nurse from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center accompanied by her aunt and eight-year-old daughter.
The group arrived on Friday and enjoyed a wonderful dinner, then spent Saturday taking in all that Patriot Point has to offer, including kayaking, fishing and crabbing off the pier and the new shooting range, where Patriot Point General Manager Hugh Middleton offered lessons on how to use firearms.
“It’s always nice to learn a little more from a retired Navy SEAL,” said Kyle Barr, Mobile Operations & Programs Manager for USO National Capital District. “It was a really relaxing weekend. Everybody got to much as little or as much as they wanted. It was exactly what they needed.”
