Toby Keith Loves And Supports Our Troops Ten Times Over
There is no one braver than a man or woman who enlist in the military to go overseas and fight for Americans. I am a huge supporter of our US Troops. Toby Keith agrees and is headed overseas for a USO tour.
As a US citizen, I am so thankful for the freedoms that we have in this great nation. But at the same time I realize that without all the brave men and women putting their lives on the line each day, we would not have the luxuries that we do. Many of us take it for granted.
Celebrities are a lucky group of people. They get opportunities to go overseas and meet the soldiers and even, depending on their talent, perform for them. Toby Keith is one who takes every opportunity to thank them.
Toby Keith has signed up for another USO trip. This will make his 10th trip. This trip, however, will be a milestone for the artist and his band. Here is what he said:
“We should surpass 200 shows, 10 years, our tenth year anniversary.”
Now because of safety reasons the exact locations will not be given, but Mr. Keith does have an idea of where he’s headed. They will be headed to Afghanistan for a week and then a week in Kuwait, Bahrain.
Keith also says, “we’ve started hitting aircraft carriers and doing a big show for 5,000 a night on the aircraft carrier . . . and then flying helicopters off the battleships and doing little two-man shows during the day.”
What an amazing man! Not only is he doing a tour on land, but he is heading out to sea.
Can you imagine being gone for long periods of time, in a place that is unfamiliar and without family? That is what our soldiers do time and time again.
While I can send care packages, it’s people like Toby Keith that can give them a little relief. If you are interested in being a part of Sock For Soldiers, you can get information here.
