Smith.
The group told the audience about their love for our troops and encoured evenryone to support the USO.
Yesterday they were moved at witnessing the changing of the guard and wreath laying at Arlington National Cenmetary yesterday. Afterwards they spent time thanking the Soldiers who guard the Tomb and who oversee the burial of our honored heroes.
Last week following their concert in Dallas they visited the USO at DFW and performed for troops and thanked them for their service.
Later this week Voice Avenue will be in Cincinnati, St Louis and Hosuton where local NBC affilaites will have them on to promote the USO and where they will visit USO Centers.
