A great turnout for our September 2022 Warrior Wednesday lunch at Mission BBQ.

Creekside Veterans Club Donates a "Boatload" of Supplies to the Dulles USO!

On 9 September, Hardi Rosner and Brian Schires delivered hundreds of dollars in much needed supplies to the Dulles USO ($300 directly from CVC plus donations from kind Creekside residents). The USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side. The Dulles Airport USO offers near around-the clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. The USO is not part of the federal government and as such relies on the generosity of individuals and organizations like our Creekside residents and its Veterans Club to accomplish their mission.
