Franchot to Honor VITA Volunteers and USO Center in Bethesda for Work with Military
Comptroller to Present Proclamations to Each for Helping Service Personnel
WHO: Comptroller Peter Franchot
WHAT: Comptroller Franchot will honor Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) volunteers and the USO-Warrior and Family Center-Bethesda with proclamations Mondaymorning recognizing each for the help extended to active duty servicemen and servicewomen.
During the tax filing season, VITA volunteers Steve Swartz and Dave Heiser answer tax questions from servicemen and servicewomen as they prepare their tax returns at the Bethesda USO site. Swartz is a retired Internal Revenue Service employee and Heiser has worked with Walter Reed service personnel to prepare their taxes for several years.
Two years ago, the USO-Warrior and Family Center-Bethesda opened a state-of-the-art facility providing signature USO services and events for military families, junior enlisted and single service members as well as robust programming for wounded, ill and injured service personnel and their families. The 16,900-square-foot facility features indoor recreational space and outdoor seating and gardens.
