USO-Metro hosted more than 375 active-duty service members at its third annual Service Member Appreciation Barbecue on Friday at the Freedom Center barracks. Although held June 1, the event was part of USO-Metro's May Military Appreciation Month activities, said Pam Horton, USO Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport Services and Fort Meade operations manager. "It is an [opportunity] to recognize and say thank you to active-duty service members," she said. USO-Metro also shared information about its new location, which will open later this summer at the corner of Mapes and 6th Armored Calvary roads.
