"The U.S. military appreciates the USO and their top-notch entertainers as they engage with our service members on a continued basis," said Colon-Lopez. "The timing of this special tour is not lost on anyone as it comes before we celebrate our Independence Day, remembering everything we have sacrificed across many generations to establish and sustain our way of life and freedom."
Over the last year, the USO has delivered entertainment to more than a million service members and their families through its Military Virtual Programming. The Vice Chairman’s tour is the first time that the USO has been able to bring in-person live entertainment to multiple installations.
"Being able to return to live touring is our way of giving more than thanks to those who have done so much for the American people," said Christopher Plamp, Senior Vice President, USO Operations, Programs, and Entertainment. "Our service members and their families have been under tremendous stress and strain during the pandemic. Hopefully, going to one of our shows, seeing smiling faces, and being entertained will show them that the USO – on behalf of the American people – is there by their side."
