Country music star Kellie Pickler has just returned from a tour with the United Service Organization and has blogged about the experience – which she describes as "the most incredible thing I have ever done in my life – on her MySpace page.
“I don’t think I have ever flown this much in my life,” she wrote. “Monday we flew to Washington where we joined Admiral Mike Mullen (chairman of the joint chief of staff) to board our flight on a C-32 to Germany. That is where we kicked off our first show. I still can’t believe that in a matter of 6 days we flew to Germany, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, and England. The shows did not start until we landed on Tuesday and if I remember correctly we did 9 shows in 5 days!!!! I guess I am still on auto pilot, not sure why I am even up right now as I just got in from England late last night. lol. I don’t think this trip has really sunk in yet so it might take me a while to absorb everything.”
The singer first became involved with the USO in late 2007 when she participated in performances for troops stationed in Iraq.
“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the men and women serving our country. I will never take what you do for granted. God Bless You and God Bless the USA!”
