In conjunction with the annual Super Bowl celebration by the USO, the organization also celebrated its fifth anniversary since the building was built.

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Stephen McCombs said he frequently visits the USO and enjoys the atmosphere.

“It’s a family atmosphere,” he said, adding it’s a place to relax and enjoy being with others. At the Super Bowl party, he said it was a fun event with good-natured ribbing, as people waited for the final results of the game.

“Our mission statement is to connect Service members and their families to home, country and family throughout their service. Here on Belvoir, we have so many Soldiers who are here without their family and we want to give them a part of home,” said Casey Pizzuto, center manager for USO Warrior and Family Center-Belvoir.

There may also be family members with Service members who are deployed, and the USO is there for them, too, she said.

The USO offers a never-ending list of services for military and their families, Pizzuto said. They were also grateful for the number of partnerships they have with other organizations who host events at the USO for families.

People can also volunteer to work at the USO. They have monthly volunteer organizations, and interested parties can contact Pizzuto.
