Seven cartoonists went halfway around the globe to meet America’s troops. And they penned some notes of appreciation while they were at it.

The USO cartoonists tour to Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan – with quick stops in Turkey and Germany – wrapped recently. Those National Cartoonist Society Members also joined the USO Love Notes campaign, writing messages of support to American service members. Among those who made the trek: “Lola” creator Todd Clark, editorial cartoonists Paul Combs and Tom Stiglich, “Punderstatements” creator Bruce Higdon, “In the Bleachers and “Open Season” creator Steve Moore and MAD Magazine contributors Ed Steckley and Sam Viviano.

Coincidentally, the tour marked the last USO entertainment foray into Kyrgyzstan, where significant U.S. operations are winding down.
