Kellie Pickler Shares Pics of USO Tour in the Middle East
Country singer Kellie Pickler embarked upon her seventh USO Tour last Friday, traveling to the Middle East as part of the organization's new “Every Moment Counts” campaign, and she has been posting some great pics along the way.
The “American Idol” alum shared a photo on her Facebook page, captioning the pic, "Kyle and I flying high in the cockpit of a C-17.can you spot the ultimate photo bomb?!? #USOtour."
Pickler also posted another photo of a touching moment she shared with a soldier, captured during her time in the Middle East.
She wrote, "Not every Christmas do you get to fist bump a soldier while dangling your feet off the back of a Chinook flying in Afghanistan. Merry Christmas from the Middle East.”
The “Dancing With the Stars” winner is visiting two countries and performing five shows for the "Every Moment Counts" campaign. It encourages Americans to show their support for the troops by creating everyday moments for military families by visiting USOmoments.org in order to learn about the challenges soldiers and their families face or to donate to the USO.
Pickler said in a statement, "Every Moment Counts is especially close to my heart because it not only recognizes their personal sacrifices, but gives Americans the opportunity to thank our troops with a special gift of a moment."
