Shinedown on a USO Tour To Thank Our Troops

Video footage of Shinedown on a USO tour!

From two of our troops......

"I know no members of shinedown will see this but they should know, every soldier, sailor, airmen and marine that saw them in Iraq has more respect for them than any performer that didn't have the balls to visit. I literally bought their CD and started listening to them right after I saw them in Al Asad"

"I was in that crown in Fallujah, Iraq. It was a bad ass show. For two hours it made be forget about all the shooting and killing. More bands and people need to be like Shinedown. I appreciated them coming to Iraq to give us a break from war. Thank you Shinedown. Semper Fi!"

Wild Thing's comment........

Well this band Shinedown certainly has my respect. The love they showed for Our Troops is real. I even enjoyed that song and will probably buy one of their albums just to show my appreciation of their entertaining the GIs.

Outstanding!! I really enjoyed them signing Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" at he end.

Simon & Garfunkel used to sing "...where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you..." Where have you gone Bob Hope, Ann
Margaret, Raquel Welch and Gold Diggers?
