'Hannah Montana' salutes the troops

I had the opportunity to visit the set of “Hannah Montana” on Friday as they filmed a special episode devoted to saluting military families. It was wonderful to see the audience filled with young children whose parents are in the armed forces getting to spend the day with their mothers and fathers who either recently came back from deployment or were about to be deployed.

Their little faces lit up when Miley Cyrus-dressed as “Hannah Montana” took the stage to sing two new songs. The kids got a big surprise when they were invited onto the set to take part in a scene on the show, you could tell it was a dream come true for them. They even got gift bags filled with “Hannah Montana” swag.

When I asked the kids what the best part of the day was though, they all told me the same thing; getting to spend it with mom and dad.
