SAWYER BROWN HEADS TO GERMANY
Mark Miller and the rest of the guys in Sawyer Brown are Germany-bound. They're going overseas to give the U.S. troops a concert to remember at the 1st Armored Division Welcome Home Celebration at Germany's Rhein Main Air Base. "When they called to ask if we'd do this," said Mark, "they told us these guys have had the longest tour of active duty in Iraq - and they really wanted to do something special to celebrate their return. Even though it's in and out, one show and right home, how do you say 'No...' when someone's making that kind of sacrifice for our country? We were honored they'd ask - and thrilled to say 'Welcome Home' to these brave men and women." The band will go directly to the airfield - where the troops reporting for active duty arrive on military transport C-17s and C-5s to go straight into active combat - to have lunch. The guys will tour the facility and meet with the operational troops, and the next day following sound check, they will visit the soldiers in the Landstuhl Medical Facility, who've been injured in combat and are awaiting transfer back to a medical facility Stateside.
