For the holiday season, Pickler brought the USO’s Every Moment Counts campaign to deployed troops by spending nine days with servicemen and women stationed in two countries, delivering holiday cheer, glad tidings and special presents. Pickler visited Forward Operating Bases Walton, Pasab, Lindsey and Simmons in the Middle East while also accompanying the USO Christmas Convoy, which delivers hundreds of gifts annually to some of the most remote parts of those countries. Along with the customary meet-and-greets, Pickler treated the troops to five USO shows and a visit to a military hospital
