Terrie Rollins Appointed as USO Mid-Atlantic Advisory Council Member

Terrie Rollins, founder and CEO of RSG Strategic Services, was recently appointed as an advisory council member for USO Mid-Atlantic.

In her current role as the CEO of RSG Strategic Services, Terrie leads a Federal SBA 8(a) and multi-state certified, woman-owned management consulting company that focuses on transformative technology change. RSG Strategic Services helps clients implement and sustain technology enabled change by converging four leading indicators; people/talent/organizational design/workforce alignment; process optimization; technology human capital strategy and transformative technology change.

“I’m passionate about the USO mission of supporting military families and veterans. In good and bad times, the USO has always been there for the military and the American people,” said Terrie. “The USO has served our military communities and their families for over 82 years, and I’m excited to offer my assistance and help them continue strengthening those who serve in this new capacity.”

In her new role as a USO advisory council member, Terrie will work with the USO Mid-Atlantic staff and fellow council members to increase the visibility of the USO across USO Mid-Atlantic’s area of operations, which is comprised of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Terrie will also concentrate on increasing year-over-year donations and fund development for the USO, to better support the needs of service members and their families, providing generationally relevant programing that promotes the mental health and resiliency of our military communities.

“USO Mid-Atlantic is excited and proud to welcome Terrie Rollins as an esteemed member of our USO Mid-Atlantic advisory council,” said John Falin, Executive Director of USO Mid-Atlantic. “Terrie’s desire to support military families like her own will bring a unique passion to our goal of raising awareness of the USO’s vital mission.”

Terrie is no stranger to the military community, having been an active-duty military spouse and whose family has served in the military for over the past century.

Her family’s military service dates back to her grandfather who served in WWI; and her dad served in the Army during WWII. Both of Terrie’s uncles also served, with one uncle serving in the Army during the Korean war, and the other in the Air Force during Vietnam. Terrie’s cousins also served in the military, and her nephew is currently serving in the Army as well. Her husband a retired Air Force veteran of 22 years, has many family members who also served, so military service has become a family tradition for Terrie and her husband’s family.

Understanding first-hand the many challenges and sacrifices our service members and their families endure throughout their time in service, especially military spouses, Terrie is committed to having a positive impact on the military community as a whole in her new role.

“As a former military spouse, I’m painfully aware of the challenges facing this group. This is more than a spouse employment matter; it’s a military readiness challenge,” said Terrie. “With an all-volunteer force, the ability of military spouses to find and sustain careers through multiple moves is key to stability of the all-volunteer force, and the USO plays a key role in addressing this challenge.”

As a USO advisory council member, Terrie will also focus on networking with other local business leaders in various industries to educate them on the value of the USO and the positive impact our organization has on the military by serving as a bridge between the civilian and military communities.

“Never has there been a greater need for the USO. Military members and families are facing unprecedented challenges, growing recruitment concerns, mental and physical health, financial stress, difficult family situations and military to civilian transitions,” said Terrie. “I believe the USO should continue supporting the force and community as they tackle these challenges, and I am honored to have been selected to help the USO address these challenges in my new role as a USO advisory council member.”

Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
