Default Dulles USO lounge offers home away from home

... military travelers who use Washington Dulles International Airport will find a comfortable spot spend time during layovers and other travel delays thanks to the efforts of the USO of Metropolitan Washington.
Local News - BelvoirEagle.com
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. Our corporate partners made an $800,000 commitment to fund the operating expenses for the first five years.”
Nice touch.
Here's where they got the money, just fyi:
