It's been less than six weeks since the massive military complex at Ft. Hood, Texas, was rocked by the horrific shootings on the base. Immediately after it happened, the USO began working to support and comfort the community. Today, some celebrities are pitching in, taking part in "Fort Hood Community Strong," billed as a day of "healing, fun and entertainment."
Among the attractions at Hood Stadium: a set by Houston rapper Chamillionaire, an acoustic set from Staind singer Aaron Lewis, a performance by the Zac Brown Band, a meet-and-greet for troops and their families with Nick Jonas, and appearances by actor Gary Sinise and comedian Dana Carvey, among others.
There's been a lot of talk about the Ft. Hood shooter, but not nearly as much about the nearly 350,000 men, women and children directly affected by the assault. They're dedicated to protecting us; when they need help, let's make sure they get it.
