In total, more than 3,500 service members and their families were in attendance for Adkins' performance.
The USO is proud of its ongoing relationship with Adkins and honored to have worked with Ramstein Air Base in putting together this special concert.
“I was in my garage, having a cup of coffee and watching TV when the second plane hit. The actions, thoughts and emotions that followed changed not only the course of history but also the lives of so many, including myself. This concert was especially meaningful as it was my way of saying ‘thank you’ and ‘God bless you’ to all of those affected by 9/11 as well as those currently serving our nation. I would also like to thank the USO for giving me the opportunity to travel around the world to visit our nation’s troops.”
