USO Metropolitan Washington

Me and a Friend2The Washington Nationals are thankful for all that USO Metropolitan Washington does to help the more than 500,000 military families in the area. While we work together in a number of areas, we’re particularly proud of the Me and a Friend program, developed in 2010 in coordination with the Department of Defense.

Military children face unique social challenges as their parents are frequently reassigned. Many times, these moves occur during the summer months, making it harder for kids to make connections with peers. For every Sunday home game the Nationals provide 100 tickets to military children through the USO’s Ticketline program, giving them the opportunity to invite a new friend. This special group receives a visit from Screech, scoreboard recognition and first-in-line privileges for Kids Run the Bases.

We are thanking the USO Metropolitan Washington as part of our Week of Thanks. For more on #NatsWeekOfThanks, click here.
