FORT BELVOIR, Virginia—On Monday, the USO teamed up with Jeep to bring the band X Ambassadors to Fort Belvoir to play a pop-up concert for service members and their families. Nearly 50 troops and their families attended the event, which was hosted at USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to our service members,” Director of USO Warrior and Family Centers Pamela Horton said.
In addition to hearing X Ambassadors play hits like “Renegade” and “Gorgeous,” attendees enjoyed a pizza lunch and meet-and-greet with the band.
“We love giving back to our fans,” X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris said. “We heard about this opportunity to come here today so we jumped at the chance.”
You can send a message of support and thanks directly to service members via the USO’s Campaign to Connect. Your messages will appear on screens at USO locations around the world.
