Grascals to greet troops, President Bush

The GrascalsThe Grascals will perform this morning (11/25) in Ft. Campbell, KY for the soldiers, prior to an address by President Bush. The President will also bestow a Volunteer Service Award to a local hero.

Jamie Johnson speaks for the band about this opportunity…

"What an honor to be a small part of something so huge. The troops are coming back from serving our country, and we intend to do an upbeat show and put a smile on each and every face as we all welcome them home!"

We are hoping to get some photos from this event, and will post them as soon as we get them.

There is more presidential news from the band…

The Grascals will have a second meeting with the president next Tuesday, December 2, as they travel to Washington D.C. to perform during a special reception, dinner and party honoring the President and Mrs. Laura Bush and the Vice President and Mrs. Lynn Cheney. The band will receive a private White House tour and be there to meet the president and first lady when they arrive.

2008 has been a good year to be a Grascal.
