This is the band’s second USO tour and the third for Zac Brown, who traveled on the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff USO Holiday tour in 2008 and performed at the USO Fort Hood Community Strong event in 2009 with his band. Together, Brown and his band have entertained and boosted the morale of more than 23,000 troops!
