The new USO Center on Fort Meade will host its first big event this Sunday when it invites service members to watch the Super Bowl.
The center, which includes two big-screen televisions and comfy couches for viewing, is inviting service members from all branches of the military as well as students at the nearby Defense Information School.
"Though Fort Meade is planted firmly in Ravens Nation, the post is home to troops from across the country, including some 49er faithful," USO officials said in a press release. "Fort Meade USO will host both sides and encourage some friendly competition with a team spirit challenge, trivia test and pushups for the losing team."
The new Fort Meade USO center opened in early January and includes free wi-fi, a snack bar, computers, a patio and other amenities designed to serve the growing population on base.
