Huntington Ingalls Industries helped support the private, non-profit USO’s annual gala held in Washington via a four star-level sponsorship.
“We are proud to sponsor the USO and the important work it does all around the world,” Mike Petters, president and CEO of HII, said Friday.
“The USO’s support of the men and women who keep our nation safe is truly remarkable,” he added.
The 2013 USO Gala marked 72 years of the organization providing entertainment, programs and services for U.S. troops and their families.
USO-sponsored activities include career transition seminars, care package deliveries and programs tailored for wounded soldiers and families of warfighters that were killed in action.
