If it is Thanksgiving, Aaron Tippen is entertaining our troops. Last year, he was in Afghanistan. This year, he was in Kuwait and Iraq. The pictures are from concerts in Baghdad and Tikrit.
Tippen began entertaining the troops with Bob Hope in 1990 in Saudi Arabia. He not only entertains the troops in the war zones, he takes their stories to his concerts at home.
“I tell (the audience) what I saw,” Tippin said. “I tell them just how much they are doing over here and how much good they are doing.”
Tippen stayed after each concert until everyone in line had an autograph. Thank you, Aaron Tippen for taking care of our troops!!!
Don't you just love his outfit???!!!!!!!!
Enjoy the music!
