Kellie Pickler hit the road for her 5th USO tour over Memorial Day weekend, a tour which lasted eight days and featured five concerts in two countries.
"I've been so blessed to work a lot with the USO and travel overseas to Afghanistan and Iraq and Kosovo and all kinds of other military bases. I've been able to see firsthand just exactly what they're doing," Pickler told The Boot.
"It takes a very special person to sacrifice everything. When I say 'everything,' I don't mean just their time, I mean their life. Everything! Their family, their kids, their loved ones. You sacrifice every thing to put your life on the line for us, and it's such a great, honorable, heroic thing . . ." she added.
Earlier this month, Pickler got a ride with the Navy's famed Blue Angels at the Great Tennessee Air Show.
