Two events - a marriage vow renewal and USO Gala/Dance - the 70th anniversary of the USO which was founded in 1941. These events help to conclude the year-long celebration in NC. The marriage vow renewal ceremony and celebration will take place aboard the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA from 11am to 1pm. The ceremony is open to all couples who were married while on active duty, in the reserves or on National Guard status. There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required at USO-NC.org. All others who wish to attend may purchase a $10 ticket from the site. Reminisce with friends and family as the sounds of swing fill the historic Hannah Block USO Building commemorating the vital role the USO, and particularly this historic building played during WWII.
