Prince George’s and Montgomery counties ring the Nation’s Capital and provide many of the workers for the federal government. The region is home to important federal facilities such as the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Bethesda Naval Hospital. The National Capital Region also has some of the most educated and highly trained workers in our nation, many working in the scientific or biological research fields. Andrews Air Force Base in Prince George’s County is home to Air Force One and the fleet of presidential aircraft. Residents and visitors to the region often use Washington’s Metro – the second-busiest rail system in the nation – that serves the entire region.
