Troops overseas are about to find out as the USO once again teams up with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen for the annual USO holiday tour featuring Lance Armstrong, Lewis Black, Kix Brooks, Bob DiPiero, Kathleen Madigan and Robin Williams.

Partnering with the USO since 2000, the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has deployed more than 11 entertainment tours and lifted the spirits of more than 150,000 service men and women. Delivering a much-needed break to troops overseas, the seven-day tour will deliver laughs and goodness to our men and women in uniform during a time of year that matters most, the holidays.

This trip will mark the sixth USO tour for Williams, the third for Black and the second for Armstrong, Brooks, DiPiero and Madigan.

  1. I was at the Warrior Center a couple of years ago and to see the happiness this bring to our wound would make any American cry. Thank you for do this. I only wish that I would be there. I’m scheduled to be at the Warrior Center January 5th, 2011.

    Again, thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
