“I’ve been traveling with the USO since 2002, and every year I look forward to spending time with the men and women who serve this great country. When I get on stage and look out into a crowd of uniforms, it gives me a great sense of pride to know that I am giving back to them.”
That’s what award-winning singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby Keith had to say about his current four-country USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. He’s traveling to Korea, Germany and the Persian Gulf on his eighth USO tour. Since his first USO tour in 2002, Keith has traveled to more than 10 countries and entertained over 140,000 service men and women, many at small remote outposts.
