A 770-square foot USO lounge for service members and their families opened at Dulles on April 16. The lounge is located on the arrivals level across from baggage claim 12.
“USO-Metro has been working on the USO Dulles lounge project for over three years,” said Elaine Rogers USO-Metro president. “The completed lounge is a testament to both the local and corporate support backing our organization, in turn helping us better serve those who serve our nation.
