One of the best things about tour is greeting these Americans, telling them through music what their Navy is about, and instilling some patriotism and pride in their country. Many folks came up and told us the show was a fun break from the realities of their farming life right now. To us, this was a high compliment to be sure.
The hospitality and graciousness of the folks in Claremore, Okla. made the first show of our 2012 national tour a great success!
