Kellie Pickler Cheers Up the Troops in Afghanistan

Kellie Pickler may be known mainly for her voice and talent, but there are other aspects to her personality. Chief among her virtuous traits is patriotism. This brave young woman ventured to Afghanistan in order to uplift the hearts and souls of the troops stationed there. 

Kellie sang and posed for photos with the military and air force personnel in the landlocked country. And the important thing was that it was the season to give, Christmas that is. In the capacity of a famous country singer, Kellie Pickler really hit a home run with the fighters in Afghanistan. There were several of them who even developed a crush on her. 

The fact is that there are voices that care for the troops far away from home. Despite America’s image in the rest of the world as a Global Policemen, there are still many Yankees who stick up for their homeland in a fierce and fundamental show of patriotism. 

Kellie Pickler reminds one of Marilyn Monroe’s cheering on of the troops in the bygone days. It’s been over a decade since the troops have been stationed on a tour of duty in what was originally Taliban territory. It seems Uncle Sam does what it can for its allies whether in the way of general benefits or light entertainment.

Who should really ...
