Charlie Daniels entertains the troops

The Charlie Daniels Band plays for military members of Ali Base, Iraq, 2006 (USAF)

We’ve all heard of USO shows, but there’s another far-more intrepid group of entertainers that produces over 1,200 shows around the world each year, reaching over 500,000 personnel at 355 military installations. It’s called Armed Forces Entertainment, and it’s the Department of Defense’s agency for reaching US servicemembers at the most remote, isolated, and dangerous  locations, from ships at sea to landlocked battlezones. Joining us on VBC Happy Hour is entertainer Russell “RG” Smith, who served in five wars, first as a Navy combat photographer and public affairs officer for riverine units in Vietnam. RG then worked as a magician and comedian on USO and DoD tours in the Persian Gulf, Panama, Bosnia, and Somalia. He went places others wouldn’t to entertain troops in the harshest of environments.

Sponsored by D&D Auto Salvage and Tobacco Free Adagio Health.  Simulcast to Facebook and YouTube.

GET INVOLVED TODAY

The mission of the Veterans Breakfast Club is to create communities of listening around veterans and their stories to ensure that this living history will never be forgotten.  We believe that through our work, people will be connected, educated, healed, and inspired.

INTRODUCING THE VETERANS HISTORY PROJECT

Preserving veterans’ stories so that this living history is never forgotten.

We pair passionate VBC volunteers with military veterans for one-on-one oral history interviews over Zoom. If you are a veteran, or you know a veteran, who would be interested in sharing his or her story with us, let us know. If you are someone interested in conducting these interviews, please reach out!
