Shali Center continues with No Dough Dinner program
Each month the USO Northwest Shali Center, located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, serves a free meal to service members and their families. The menu changes each month. In March, the 296th Brigade Support Battalion enjoyed philly cheese steak sandwiches, and this April the 42nd Military Police BDE will be served grilled salmon. These meals are possible because of the generous donations made by individuals and companies in 2013.
