Kellie Pickler has been on multiple USO tours entertaining the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo among other places. She’s always floored by the huge sacrifices they make on a daily basis to defend our freedom.
Kellie says, “It takes a very special person to sacrifice everything. Everything! Their family, their kids, their loved ones. You sacrifice everything to put your life on the line.”
She adds that you don’t have to go overseas to show your appreciation for the U.S. military either. Kellie encourages her fans to show their appreciation when they see service men and women out in public.
“It’s small things like saying ‘thank you’ that make the biggest difference because it shows appreciation,” Kellie says, “and it shows that you respect what they’re doin’.”
Kellie is now gearing up for her fifth USO tour.
