After the band\’s amazing dose of \’boot camp\’, it was time to gear up for the show. Maj. Gen. James M. Milano came out on stage to introduce the band, and say some words for the troops.
Jim Beam\’s own, Fred Noe then came out to thank everyone for coming out, and to introduce the band as well.
Big Daddy Kev then stormed the stage to get the crowd hyped up. The crowd was insane by this point!
Showtime. As you can see… there were a TON of people.
I wasn\’t aware that the crowd would be split like this… soldiers one one side, civilians on the other. It definitely made for a sight to see.
Richard kept things moving on bass.
While Paul was doing the same on guitar.
Brit layed down the tempo for everyone behind the drums.
Brandon on keys.
Charlie on vocals/guitar.
The soldiers had so much energy, and were VERY apparently LOVING the show.
All it took was a slight turn of the camera, and they would all go crazy!
This snap of Paul looks crazy with the giant spotlight shining down on him.
After the show, Maj. Gen. Milano presented the band with an amazing plaque.
It reads \”Thank you for all you do in your continued support of Soldiers and their families. You are True Patriots!! Fort Jackson, SC, September 11, 2010\”.
That wraps things up from Fort Jackson. Our time on-base was definitely a unique experience, and one I am extremely honored to have experienced with the guys!
