PHOTOS: Troops Rock With Seether in Italy, Turkey
Monday, March 26, 2012
The South African rock group Seether reaffirmed its commitment to America's troops and their families by performing concerts in Italy and Turkey to show their gratitude for the sacrifices they make in the service of the United States.
Before the trip, Seether shared their thoughts on their third USO tour and what performing for our nation's servicemen and women means to them and as you can see from these photos and ones that are posted on the USO Seether Flickr page, their passion comes out on stage.

Members of the rock group Seether pose for a group photo backstage at Aviano Air Force Base, Italy, on March 23. From left to right, Dale Stewart, Shaun Morgan and John Humphrey traveled to the region as part of their third USO tour. During the trip, the group visited troops in Turkey and Italy.

No matter how busy we become or how many days we are out on the road -- we will always find time to volunteer with the USO and extend our thanks to troops and their families."
Seether broke away from their Time of My Life Tour with 3 Doors Down to extended America's gratitude and spread cheer. In all, the multi-platinum rock band visited and entertained more than 1,000 airman, soldiers and their families stationed at Incirlik Air Base, Aviano Air Base and Camp Darby.
