KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, BILOXI, Miss. – Actresses Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell-Martin, the dynamic duo from the popular 1990s sitcom “Martin,” hosted a “Girl Talk” workshop and meet-and-greet event for military spouses here Saturday.

Organized by USO Gulf Coast, “Girl Talk” is a time for military spouses to network with one another and speak freely about issues that are unique to them and military culture. The duo discussed their lifelong friendship, performed an acapella rendition of “America the Beautiful” and led the group through a 90s sitcom trivia game.

“My whole family served, so it’s an honor to be here,” said Campbell-Martin, noting that the visit was her first interaction with the USO. “We thank you for watching our shows and hopefully we brought some laughter and levity to your lives.”

“We appreciate all of you for supporting our careers, and it makes us so happy if we’re able to make your lives even just a little bit better,” said Arnold.

Petty Officer First Class Quintin McDonald heard about the event through a friend on base.

“I’m a huge fan of Tisha and Tichina,” said McDonald. I’ve watched them since I was a kid growing up in South Carolina, and this made my day. No, this made my year.“
