Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Logar Province, Afghanistan – Celebrities traveling throughout Afghanistan on a USO tour stopped at Forward Operating Base Shank to meet and entertain and troops for the holiday season December 21st.

Country music star Buddy Jewell from Nashville, Tennessee, was excited for this opportunity to visit with servicemembers. Jewell, who has asked for years to come out on USO tours to Afghanistan, finally got his shot this year.

“My good buddy Kenny Thomas, who has done a lot of work for the Soldiers, he and I were riding together a while back and I said I really wanted to get on one of these tours for a long time,” said Jewell. “A couple of weeks later the phone rings and he said, ‘There’s a spot available, you want to go?’ I said yes. It’s a thrill to be here.”
