The USO

We are at war. And that means that the USO goes into full swing to entertain our troops. While I always read about famous USO tours during WWII and Vietnam, it seems to be pretty low key nowadays. So, HRC did a little digging…and didn’t come up with much.

2006 entertainers to Iraq included:
-> you guessed it…several American Idols
-> and Toby Keith

2007 entertainers to Iraq:

-> Jamie Kennedy’s Hip Hop Comedy tour featuring Paul Wall
-> ?

Oh, there’s plenty going on in other places…like Italy and Germany, Texas, Hawaii, and even Africa. Perhaps Iraq is too dangerous for the USO, and some acts refuse to participate because they don’t want to support the war.

Here’s a vid from recent Iraq USO event. Chuck Norris was there!
