Event Description

In 2002, then Sergeant Major of the Army Jack L. Tilley asked The U.S. Army Band (TUSAB) for volunteers to join a contingent of USO performers for an exceptional opportunity: to travel with his “Hope and Freedom Tour” to entertain deployed troops throughout Southwest Asia during the December holiday season. These volunteers were the first members of “Pershing’s Own” to go “downrange” into a theater of foreign combat operations since World War II. It was during this event that TUSAB became vitally aware of the need to perform the Popular Music of our Troops both overseas and here at home.
